Our Miami Florida attractions and weather make it an ideal vacation spot. The beachy things, the swamps, and the endless supply of entertainment make this a vibrant city. What can go under the radar though is the vast collection of museums. Having a rich history and dynamic culture in our city lends itself to these alluring spots. A day visiting these top places is a day well spent.
Pérez Art Museum Miami
Among one of the premier places we suggest is the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog and de Meuron, the building itself is a work of art. It sits on an elevated surface with a canopy extending far beyond creating shade that anyone can take advantage of on a hot day. Inside, the art is described as modern and contemporary — dating back from the 20th century to the present. Beyond having tours where you will be able to view the exhibits, PAMM consistently hosts events ranging from special pop-ups where cocktails are served to hands-on art creation. As an added bonus, visiting the first Thursday of the month and second Saturday permits free entry.
The closest from Hotel St. Augustine and one of the stranger places to visit is The Wolfsonian — Florida International University. Just a short walk from the many hotels on Washington Avenue Miami is this unique venue. It is a library, research center, and a museum with a design store and coffee bar. The art collection consists of over 180,000 objects! The collection focuses on North American and European decorative arts. With the various different things to do in Miami for couples, a trip here is different among them and will keep your curiosity up around any corner. Grab a coffee and enjoy all the splendor!
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens has some of the richest history. With the completion of Vizcaya’s Main House in the mid-1910s and the gardens in the early 1920s, this museum still has an elegance and mystical sense to it. Designed after European villas, every inch of the house was expertly conceived from the symmetry of the east facade facing the sea to the interiors of the rooms designed to suggest the passing of time. Every time you visit these Miami Florida attractions, you are bound to discover something new.
