May is Miami Museum Month

Bass Museum of Art

Bass Museum of Art

South Florida’s cultural scene extends far beyond the sunny beaches, Art Deco buildings and flawless plastic surgery of an alarming number of residents. May is Miami Museum Month, a special opportunity for cultural exploration at area museums that benefits visitors and locals alike. If you are visiting the city in May, you will be offered an opportunity to buy one admission ticket and get a second one free. If you live here, you can join one museum and get a free pass to all the other museums in town. Now you can bar hop by night, and museum hop by day!

No matter what kind of art floats your boat, the museums in Dade County are anxious to have you view their collections. Participating museums in Miami Museum Month include contemporary indie spots like the Art Center/South Florida on Lincoln Mall and the Bakehouse Art Complex in Wynwood. Enjoy a tour of the Bass Museum of Art, the Haitian Heritage Museum or South Beach’s Jewish Museum of Florida. Larger institutions like the Lowe Art Museum, the Miami Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and The Frost Art Museum are also part of the promotion. If you are visiting South Beach, don’t miss the vintage objects at the Wolfsonian-FIU, the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens or the Miami Children’s Museum on Watson Island.

Be certain to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to explore South Florida’s rich art scene and save a little extra money in May!
