For anyone who appreciates art in all of its form. It is worth the visit and the have a very nice sundry shop and cafeteria with great gifts and literature. Free admission included in the resort fee of the hotel we stayed at.

I was not expecting too much as I thought this was a propaganda museum - which it is, but not in your face. It makes you think about what propaganda was at the time and how they got their message across. All posters were very well thought out and artistic. Very nicely done. (The security people do not seem to be overly interested though.) Nice quiet change from the beach and restaurant scene.

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.
