Miami Art Museum, Miami
(2.5/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
Pérez Art Museum Miami was originally founded as the Center for Fine Arts, and was strictly an exhibiting organization with no collection of its own. In 1996, as part of an institution-wide reorganization, the museum was renamed Miami Art Museum and dedicated itself to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries with a special emphasis on art of the Americas. Since then, the collection has grown steadily and now comprises more than 1,300 works across a range of media. The new Pérez Art Museum Miami in downtown Miami’s Museum Park will strengthen the Museum’s role as a vital cultural and educational center and provide generous spaces to showcase the Museum’s art holdings and attract more top caliber exhibitions. Opening as Pérez Art Museum Miami in recognition of a landmark leadership gift of cash and art from Jorge M. Pérez—now valued at $40 million—the Museum will serve as a resource commensurate with Miami’s thriving community of artists, designers, collectors, and arts-engaged public.

  • Ten dollar fee (seniors less). Clean, cool, new exhibits and good learning. Expect to spend an hour or two exploring. We did not visit the adjacent building which is also included. 
  • A small but pleasant Museum with interesting exhibits that change periodically. Worth a peek if you're near.

  • Trip Advisor map does not show the location of the Perez art museum, the museum linked to in "Website". The omni loop metro is free and will take you to museum park.

  • Sorry to say, but this was by far the most disappointing experience I ever had at a museum. I've visited major museums all over the world including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Florene, Milan, London, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Medellin, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Berlin and other cities, but the PAMM was by far the worst experience. For the most part the galleries and walls seemed empty with only a few disappointing paintings/sculptures. The US$16.00 entry fee for what it offered was a complete rip off when compared to how much grand museums around the world charge. The building is beautiful the location is magnificent with lots of potential. I sure hope this museum gets better as the city of Miami more than deserve something at the level of New York, London and Paris.
  • The addition of PAMM to our community is awesome. A very respectable art museum with some great revolving works. I've see Ai Wei Wei and Basquiat there, to name a couple. Gift shop is great, but expensive. The building's architecture, modeled after Stiltsville, is gorgeously eye-catching -- perhaps one of the most attractive buildings downtown (or Miami?). There is a coffee shop and restaurant on the premises. Even if art isn't your thing, sit on the steps outside and watch the world go by.
  • Nice museum to visit if you have a cloudy rainy day in Miami. Enjoy the view and the restaurant. Always good activities to enjoy.
  • Perez Art Museum has quickly become one of the more eclectic art hubs in Miami with its views of the inter-coastal and interesting architectural design. Perez Art Museum or more commonly referred to as PAMM is at the cultural epicenter as it provides much needed programming for kids and adults in the community. PAMM also caters to their contributing members with events monthly for those that financially support the programs which include rotating exhibits housing different mediums of art from local and international artists. For no additional cost other than parking you can visit their park which features some sculpture art swings, and cafe under some unique landscape art that are usually synonymous with the building.
  • This poor excuse for a museum should have a very explicit disclaimer that warns people that they will be ripped off $16 of their hard earned money to see old news paper articles adsurdly praising communist dictators Fidel Castro and Che Guevara - and call it art. To put the icing on the cake, they vehemently refused to return our money. Don't bother going, you'll be wasting your precious time and money.
