“Wonderful Walking Tour”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The guide was excellent at making the tour of the architecture of South Beach informative, without it becoming a lecture, and by weaving in the history and personalities that settled and occupied the area it made you feel like you really got to know how South Beach had become a destination, both then and now.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The MDPL was a wonderful resource not only for information about art and architecture in South Beach, but for local attractions and eateries as well. The gallery on sight was a fabulous find! On the day we visited the Welcome Center, a new multimedia exhibit featuring several local artists had just opened - what a treat! Well worth the stop to maximize your visit to the area.

“Art Deco audio tour”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

My wife and I visited the Art Deco Welcome Centre and found the service to friendly and efficient. We found the audio tour to be an excellent way to enjoy the architecture (in the South Beach district) at our own pace. We stopped for breakfast along the way at the Art Deco dinner on Washington Avenue before completing our tour in approximately 2 hours - Well worth the time at a nominal cost.
Thank you MDPL Art Deco Welcome Centre for your enthusiasm and interest in sharing your knowledge of the historical Art Deco movement in this area and a most unique experience.
