Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a beautiful attraction. We spent about three hours touring the house and the gardens. The kids loved the gardens more than the house, but we all enjoyed the entire experience. There are beautiful views of the bay from outside the house near the barge. We went early in the morning when there were no crowds. We purchased discount tickets from Smart Destinations and saved a few bucks.

With two teen boys I was worried about this one but my wife had enough football and basketball so this was her time. We all enjoyed it! We self walked the property and grounds on our own pace and learned about the grand structure. Very unique structure mostly built from coral reef in the 1920's.

Beautiful history, architecture, and surrounding gardens on the water-front. Well worth the price of admission.

Beautiful gardens! It has some small gardens on the side and an upper level toward the end. It's designed very magnificent.
On the ocean side, there was a stone ship built in the ocean, which was really impressive and unique. We watched the sunset there, with the ancient sculptures, it was amazing.
The house itself was ok for me. But thinking of the ocean view in the bath and garden view in the breakfast room, it was really nice to live there.
We went there one hour before the closing time, i would say, spend more time in the garden, walking around and enjoy it.
