In addition to some of the country’s top beaches and bars, Miami Beach is a bustling center for art, culture, history, and science and home to many unique and diverse museums.

- The Miami Children’s Museum is one of the best of its kind. It’s a fun-filled interactive environment that invites kids, parents, and visitors of all ages to play and learn together.

All of the exhibits emphasize arts, culture, community, communication, imagination, and creativity. Visitors will see the 2-story Sandcastle of Dreams, a real recording studio, and climb the 30-foot rock wall!

- The Jewish Museum of Florida is housed in a meticulously restored, former synagogue that housed Miami Beach’s first Jewish Congregation.

The 1936 Art Deco building features nearly 80 stained glass windows, a copper dome, chandeliers, and other iconic Miami Art Deco features.

The museum’s core exhibit is MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida, which tells the story of 250 years of Jewish history in the state.

- The World Erotic Art Museum features over 4,000 works of erotic art from all over the world ranging from 300 BCE to present.

With both temporary and permanent exhibits, the museum is always introducing engaging collections to further their goal of familiarizing the general public with erotic art.

- The Bass Museum of Art boasts a collection with work from 4 continents and a span of 500 years.

These celebrated collections and ever-changing contemporary exhibits fulfill the museum’s mission to “inspire and educate by exploring the connections between our historical collections and contemporary art”.

The museum also showcases a signature collection of monumental 19th-century tapestries and altarpieces that are a must see for any art lover or history buff.
