If you come to Ocean Drive, walk on Lummus Park or even go to South Point Park, you must make a pit stop here. They have the coolest shop and a great deal of informational material on South Beach and the Art Deco movement. And great a/c to take a respite from hot Miami Beach in the summer months.

No books with self-guided walking tours, no maps with same. They push their walking tours. Adjacent gift shop is tacky to the max.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Before coming, we called and asked about parking. We were provided with excellent directions to an inexpensive garage close to the welcome center. They were thorough in explaining how to use the audio equipment and when we asked for extra time for using our audio tour, they didn't hesitate to accomodate us. The art deco walking tour was excellent. The equipment was in good working order and the information was informative and well presented. The accompanying map/brochure provided additional useful information. We felt well-informed about art deco in South Beach upon completing our tour. This is definitely worthwhile. Upon returning from the tour, we asked about other arts information they were helpful with their suggestions and even showed us on a map where everything was located. Beyond the arts, they told us about traffic patterns and even assisted with directions to our dinner destination.

The self -walking tour of Miami's South Beach is a nice diversion from a hot day on the beach and a great way to learn the history of the area. We have been to South Beach a few dozen times, but decided to finally take a walking tour of the area. The employees in the Welcome Center were friendly and helpful in all aspects. My husband uses a wheelchair and the tour was completely wheelchair friendly. So glad we did this - worth the wait !
