Wynwood Walls, Miami
Categories: Art Museums, Museums
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.To visit Wynwood Walls on your trip to Miami, use our Miami itinerary maker.
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.

What a lovely restaurant! It is located in an open area with gardens, surrounded by walls painted by local artists, and a couple art galleries and shops. It's all very entertaining and exciting to look at. I was in a large group, and we got served family style, so I can't list every single thing I had, but the different meats, sides and desserts were all great. The service was excellent, and at the same casual. I would go back to this restaurant and this area if I'm ever in Miami again
One of the "must go" on Miami, you will have an amazing experience at the walls. Quite fresh if you go around 6 pm, with a natural light good enough to take the best photos with the artistic walls and cool enough to avoid sweating like in any other place in Miami. The art is just amazing, while you can also find outside other kinds of art, such as music, amazing food and street performers. I would recommend this to people on a date or wanting to chill, talk and walk a little bit.
I just visited for the first time and had an absolute blast taking photos and walking the streets! I would recommend driving down the main drag before parking because it can be a little confusing to get oriented if you park a couple blocks out and walk there. I definitely got sketched out and wondered if I was in the right place before I hit a swath of über hipster taco cafes and art galleries that made me realize I was there and that it was safe enough to walk around. Plan on giving yourself at least an hour to explore the surrounding area and search out hidden gems. Fun and free activity!
I love it here. If you enjoy art and creativity this is a great place to spend some time. It's also within asking distance of some great places to eat
A great example of the next best thing, keeps getting better. At the time of this writing, the Zika Virus is an issue. Wonderfully funky shops , Resturants, clubs.
