Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

We were a bit rushed but enjoyed this lovely house and gardens....an hour didn't do it justice! Worth a visit.

A beautiful way to spend several hours in Miami. The grounds are beautiful and the estate home is lovely. We took a family member visiting from out of state as well as aren under age 12. Everyone had a great time.

For our long weekend we decided to go sightseeing other then laying on the beach and go to the bars. You would have to buy tickets to get in I believe it was about 18 dollars if you go to one of the tour center you can get a coupon for 2 dollar off. When you first get there there's... More

Purchase the audio tour as it is helpful. Allow several hours as gardens are many acres. Cafe has a very good lunch and setting. We took uber which worked very well.

Visited after a recommendation by friends and our guide book. Have visited many country houses run by the National Trust in the UK where we live and this was equally enjoyable. A wonderful building with superb contents. On a warm sunny day in November the stroll around the gardens was a delight. Accessed it from the BigBus open topped bus... More

I see other reviews on here saying, "well the house wasn't really worth it, but the gardens are great." If you simply walk through the house and just read the placards and look around, the house is an old house. But if you opt for the $5 Audio Tour, that changes everything. At least it did for us. We spent... More

Somehow I found this house to give off a melancholy vibe. It was dark and dated and worn out...which is surprising because it is still relatively young (built in 1916). It costs 18 bucks to get in but I would say the visit is worth closer to 7 or 8 dollars at most. Best part was the gardens on the... More

A beautifully maintained large residence and gardens that gives a great glimpse into the life of businessman James Deering in the early twentieth century. Such a well-run museum! Totally worth the entrance fee as there is so much to see and learn! The interior of the house contains well-preserved rooms that truly take you back in time. Budget enough time... More
