By far, one of the most beautiful museums on the list is the Vizcaya Museum. With over 600,000 square feet of gardens and 20th century architecture, it’s easy to fall in love with the scenery. This museum is a known location for photographers to have photoshoots for the great lighting and gorgeous landscape. It is also very common to spot quinceañeras in the Vizcaya Museum taking their 15’s pictures (the special photoshoots are to commemorate young Hispanic and Latina girls becoming women,) similarly to princesses in their ball gowns scattered across the castle. The location of the Vizcaya is perfect for old-fashioned, artistic inspiration as well as wedding portraits. The entrance tickets are $25 per adult, $10 for children aged 6 to 12, and free for children 5 and under.

Explore Cuba’s history and culture in the Cuban Diaspora Museum located in Little Havana, a neighborhood in Miami known for Cuban culture and residents. The current exhibition being displayed is Operation Pedro Pan, to remember the 14,000 unaccompanied children who made the lonely journey from Cuba to Miami between 1960 and 1962. This museum is perfect for travelers on a time crunch and artists looking to create activist pieces, such as Patria y Vida (Homeland and Life,) the slogan for the Cuban protests back in July 2021 to fight for freedom from Communism in Cuba.

Located in the Miami Beach Convention Center is Art Basel where you can experience international artists with a variety of different art styles through galleries, meridians, novas, and more. The museum displays art dating back from the 20th century to up-and-coming artists. As mentioned on the Art Basel website, the meridians challenge the way people usually see art by creating large-scale projects to immerse the audience.

The best for last is the iconic Wynwood Walls, which are free to view, however, I would recommend renting a bike or car to look at all the graffiti art at a faster pace. The eye-catching graffiti art is by far one of the best locations to bring out your inner artist. This is also a great hotspot to befriend other artists or make connections to launch your artistic career. The art changes as new graffiti artists emerge, so take pictures of any pieces that inspire you.
