Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a mus-see in Miami, whether it’s to be more familiar with the history of this important landmark, or as a place to take out of town visitors to marvel at the impressive grounds. The main house is the former private residence of Miami’s own James Deering.
The home, its surrounding gardens, and 11 other buildings spread out across 12 sprawling acres. You can make many trips of touring the grounds (with or without the accompanying guided audio portion) and still find new areas to discover or interesting facts each time you visit. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens also holds monthly yoga and meditation classes, community programs, and occasional special presentations like their family dinner and a movie project. Admission to Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is $22 for adults, but they have sizeable discounts for students, children, veterans, and seniors. Purchase tickets online before you go for even more savings, or consider becoming a member for free visits, discounts for additional guests, and other perks.
