I have seen some top notch exhibitions of important Art over the years. The last I remember was Picasso's sketches. Long before wonderful Art Basel Miami Beach was lucky to have this gem of a museum.

Bass Museum of Art is located on Collins Park, an area donated to the city by John Collins the first developer of Miami Beach. The stone building in the park was originally the John Collins Memorial Library when it was dedicated in 1930 but is now part of the Bass Museum. If you enjoy Art, this is then a must-see... More

The museum is really a must if you travel to Miami Beach, they used to host an event "Bass under the sunset" or something like this, I've been there couple times and it has been amazing, nice and smart people, good music and good drinks.

We've been here twice in 3 years but never find this museum open. Was told they had an exhibit in the library, so we went there. Very, very few paintings on exhibit. Very disappointed.

This is a fun place for Art Deco fans to visit. They have some nice collections and the museum is small enough that you have time to see it and still get to the beach.

This museum is worth an hour or so of your time. Experienced museum goers may be bored. There isn't that much available to view, a lot of the art is local artisans.
