Once upon a time, Miami's place for modern art downtown was known as the Miami Art Museum. It was a well-sized museum adjacent to the Government Center and was a mish-mash of contemporary and modern art from around the world. But in 2013, the former MAM outgrew its old home and was transported to a waterfront lot that, in conjunction with the soon-to-be-open Patricia and Phillip Frost Science Museum, would become Museum Park. What resulted is the wonderfully extravagant Perez Art Museum Miami. The museum continues to display modern and contemporary works of the 20th and 21st century, with a larger focus on Caribbean and North and South American culture. Along with its permanent collections and rotating exhibitions, the museum also educational programs for all ages, an outdoor music series, daily tours, evening artist talks and lectures, plus workshops, performances, and more.
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Admission to one of Miami's top art museums is free every Second Saturday and First Thursday of the month.
- Best for Museums Because: The PAMM is an impressive, innovative, and still relatively new museum, with plenty of after hours events and an aesthetic beauty that can't be denied.
