Long before Wynwood became an international art-hub, before places like the PAMM opened its doors, the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami was doing its part to bring contemporary art into the lives of all Miamians. Opened in 1996, the museum in its current state is now entering its 24th year and puts on 8 to 10 exhibitions annually. Notable artists like Anna Gaskell, Louise Bourgeois, Roy Lichtenstein, Annette Messager, and Frank Stella have all enjoyed either exhibitions or solo shows of their work in the halls of the MoCA NoMi. The museum also hosts a number of programs geared at making art more accessible to the community, including Contemporary Art Boot Camp lectures, after-school drawing classes for teens, and Arts for All hands-on art classes for adults.

- Best Attractions & Activities, Museums: "Hit up the free jazz concerts held once a month on Fridays, and make sure to bring a picnic while you're at it."
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Spend date night wandering the galleries hand-in-hand, then cozy up on a blanket under the stars for MOCA's free outdoor jazz concert, every last Friday.
- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: MOCA's commitment to innovative art and education that inspires and challenges the community at large is second to none.
- Best for Museums Because: Few museums offer free admission along with a noteworthy concert once a month. This coupled with their often edgy exhibitions makes the MOCA a must.
