Wynwood Walls, Miami

4.7
#2 of 12 in Museums in Miami
Wynwood Walls was established in 2009 by the legendary placemaker and visionary Tony Goldman as an outdoor museum of international street art. Since the first year's program – featuring Kenny Scharf, Futura, Os Gemeos, Swoon, Shepard Fairey, and other renowned innovators in street art, Wynwood Walls has become a phenomenon, spurring the creation of murals throughout the Wynwood district. It is now one of the best venues in the world to see the work of leading street artists.

In 2010, the adjacent Wynwood Doors, with 176 feet of roll-up storefront gates was added. Each subsequent year, a selection of international artists – that range from old school graffiti artists to young artists responsible for the newest work being created today – have created artwork for the Wynwood Walls. In 2012, Wynwood Walls celebrated Art Basel with a series of events dedicated to the vision of Tony Goldman who passed that September. Since that time, the project has been curated by Tony's daughter, Goldman Properties CEO Jessica Goldman Srebnick.

The world-class murals and the spirit of the project attracts thousands of people to Wynwood Walls each year and it has become a popular site for musical concerts, poetry readings, film and video screenings and special events. Miami’s now world renowned open air “museum of the streets” continues to attract visitors from around the world and currently encompasses more than 40 dazzling, cutting-edge murals created by respected street artists from Asia, Europe, Latin America and the United States.

Wynwood Walls is located on NW Second Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets and is free and open to the public. For hours and more information please visit www.thewynwoodwalls.com.

  • I expected more of Wynwood Walls because everybody was telling me that it's a must see during my summer visit to Miami. However, I felt that it is not as impressive as I expected. It is nice to go for...  more »
  • My family and I were pleasantly surprised in this new area in Miami. Really interesting art and fun to walk around! Parking seems a little difficult.  more »
  • Picturesque streets with facades painted graffiti of very high quality. I was a January Sunday afternoon, and there was lots of fun, so it must be some kind of festive special. In any case a site recommended at least to go with car for its facades.

  • Awesome, unique experience. Nothing like it in Miami. Every turn was something new. The best part is that it's all free. Little shops worth checking out all over. Good food throughout. Could spend all day there and still not see it all. Always see something new from the last time.
  • This was a great experience. From cartoon characters to quotes the art made the visit more than worth the walk. Each sidewalk, building, and street had something to say, feel, and show. My children and I even had the chance to experience an event with food trucks and music right in the area. The parking was very reasonable in pricing as well as location.
  • The murals were lovely and the whole neighborhood was amazing! All so artistic yet not boring at all, very alive. It was very crowded when I went but I recommend you take the time to visit around wynwood and to take a tour if possible. Personally, we stumbled on a guide driving a Bacardi cart that gives free tours around and it was one of the best highlights of my stay in Florida!
  • Such good artwork. We managed to see a few artists painting the walls live and seeing them effortlessly transform walls to completely different art forms felt like magic! Definitely a place worth strolling by, specially if you want to sample items from the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, or grab a Latte from Panther Coffee.
  • This is a one of a kind place. A Uber driver recommended it to us. We stayed on Miami Beach and it was very convenient ride there. The wall art is outstanding. So much detail. This will be our first stop next time.

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
