Sightseeing and landmarks in Miami

Art museums

Art Museum
“Though the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has long been one of the city’s most popular modern art museums, it's become an even bigger player on the Miami art scene since its relocation to the Biscayne Bayfront in 2013. As if the Herzog & de Meuron-designed building weren’t impressive enough, inside the massive 200,000-square-foot museum is everything from kinetic sculptures to replica boats and an outdoor sculpture garden that has become a magnet for Instagrammers”

“Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Miami After several years in a temporary space, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA) finally opened the doors to its permanent home in the Design District in 2017. The vast, metallic-fronted building, designed by Madrid’s Aranguren \+ Gallegos Arquitectos, befits the cutting-edge exhibitions and artists inside. And no one will judge you if you bypass the art and head straight for the meditative sculpture garden, which hosts permanent and rotating exhibits as well as special events, including yoga and brunch. While the institution is known for its dedication to local, emerging, and under appreciated artists, the collection here also includes the art world’s most renowned visionaries, including Pablo Picasso, Rosemarie Trockel, and Julian Schnabel. The exhibitions come together in a such a beautiful, cohesive way that you don’t have to know your Koons from your Kusama to know you’re seeing something special. ”

“Don’t let History Miami’s rather plain Mediterranean-style building and courtyard fool you: Inside, the museum paints a colorful portrait of how the city transformed itself from a mosquito-filled swampland to one of the country’s most vibrant urban areas, with exhibitions on everything from transportation to sports. Located in Miami’s ever-changing downtown (just look and listen for the cranes), the museum is not one you’re likely to just stumble upon while wandering the city—you’ll need to be specifically headed there (which is a good thing if you like a little breathing room with your culture).”
