Came here with a college class and the art and sculptures were pretty cool! The tour was awesome and informative, they had a collection with art of old political campaigns and that was interesting! Check it out to do something different!

This Museum, is one of the most comprehensive collections of art deco, in Miami, or elsewhere! Located in a former Bekins Storage building, the ambiance is set! A South Beach Must- See!!
