Excellent as always. The gardens were beautiful. The house was exquisite, and we liked the videos about the site. Great value for money and for architecture buffs.

“Very Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We really enjoyed visiting Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The house is decorated with great taste and vision, the gardens are manicured, and the view from the house is priceless. The guided tour was very educational and as a bonus we had visitors in our group who came to visit Vizcaya Museum and Gardens from the Spanish province of Vizcaya.
We spent delightful 3 hours there taking in the grandeur of the place. Really beautiful!

“Worth a couple of hours”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The overall experience is worth the price of admission. The house is very nice. You can explore on your own or take a guided tour. You can not take pictures inside the house. This makes no sense to me since it is owned by the Miami-Dade county (us taxpayers) I understand that flashes degrade pictures and tapestries but no pictures at all. As a whole the gardens and outside structures are a bit worn and need some restoration to bring them back to full working order. Many fountains are not working.
