Miami offers plenty of things for visitors and residents to see and do – while the beaches are always tempting, so are the shops, restaurants and clubs. However, there’s more to Miami than just an opportunity to eat well and party all night. Here, Culture Trip offers a guide to the best museums of Miami.
The Perez Art Museum is a contemporary art museum that relocated in 2013 to the Museum Park in downtown Miami. A new building was added that same year and within four months of the grand opening, the museum saw record attendance with over 150,000 visitors. The focus of the museum is 20th century and contemporary art, as well as cultures of the Atlantic Rim. The museum’s holdings include 1,800 objects, nearly 500 of which were acquired in 2013, including pieces by John Baldessari, Olafur Eliasson and Dan Flavin.
