|About these ratings|
Located in the Coconut Grove district, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens were originally built as a winter villa for businessman James Deering in the early 1900s. Today, it serves as a museum, with a wide variety of art from the 15th to the 19th century. The atmosphere is a key part of the experience, with much of the original house intact and showcasing a neat assortment of vintage furniture.
Though for many travelers, the gorgeous gardens are the unquestioned highlight of any trip here. Visitors say the picturesque grounds remind them of ancient European manisons.
The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens are located just a mile southwest of downtown Miami. Public transport is available with easy access from the Vizcaya Metrorail station, but there's also free parking should you choose to drive. Admission is $18 for adults and $6 for children ages 6 through 12. The museum is open every day from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., except Tuesdays and Thanksgiving and Christmas.
