Museums in Miami

Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCa)
Anyone seeking an overview of Miami's contemporary art scene as interpreted by young, up-and-coming artists won't want to miss the galleries surrounding the Charles Gwathmey-designed Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCa) in North Miami. The last Friday of each month is Gallery Night in NoMi, and a concentration of exciting young exhibitors, including Ambrosino, Grapa Art Studio Leonard Tachmes Gallery and T. Curtsnoc Gallery stay open late for legions of wine-sipping arts supporters, while MoCa hosts monthly jazz concerts. Open since 1996 the museum has garnered a reputation for innovative exhibits that capture the current state of the arts, both locally and internationally.

Bass Museum on Miami Beach
Bass Museum on Miami Beach One of the most striking venues, the recently renovated Bass Museum on Miami Beach, tripled its exhibition space after extensive expansion by world-renowned architect Arata Isozaki. Now, the Museum's large collection of European painting, sculpture, and textiles from the Renaissance to the present can be properly showcased, while important large-scale outside exhibits can also be mounted.

Wolfsonian Museum
A one-of-a-kind cultural gem also on artsy Miami Beach, the jewelbox Wolfsonian Museum is located in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco District in an historic landmark building. Owned by Florida International University (FIU), the museum is home to the Mitchell Wolfson Jr. collection, a comprehensive survey of the art of design. Consisting of more than 70,000 artifacts including furniture; industrial-design objects; glass, ceramics, and metalwork; rare books; periodicals; ephemera; works on paper; paintings; textiles; and medals primarily of North American and European origin, the works date from 1885–1945.
