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!!

This is a fascinating place if you like art deco. I haven't been to the art deco museum on Ocean Drive at the tourist center, but it didn't look that interesting. This is the real thing, a great museum; come on a rainy day.

Little gem in Miami Beach, great for a cloudy, cool day. The highlight was the Klinger Poster collection. Such a talent, great for the kids to learn a bit about WWII history.

This is a great way to spend an hour or two out of the sun. The collection is quite wide and varied with something to appeal to everyone. The air-conditioning is a bit fierce so take a sweater.
