Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami#10 in Best Things To Do in Miami
- 0.0Food Scene
If you're looking to get your modern art fix in Miami, look no further than the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. Located off of Northeast 125th Street, the MOCA is an institution with a varied collection of work from both famous and emerging artists.
There's also an impressive array of temporary exhibits that complement MOCA's already-brilliant permanent collection. The permanent collection boasts innovative work from the likes of Nam June Paik, Dan Flavin and Louise Bourgeois. However, the museum is fairly small and you should be able to easily get through it in less than two hours.
What patrons dislike most is the location. One TripAdvisor user said, "Although it's in North Miami (I wish it were either in Miami Beach or Downtown), it's worth the trip."
General admission to the museum is $5. Students and seniors get a bit of a break, paying only $3, while children age 12 and under can enter for free. MOCA's hours vary by the day; check the website for more information.

#1 Miami Beach
Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach, the region's unrivaled crown jewel. The art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.
There's something for everyone here — and a lot of it. White sand, an eclectic dining scene, prime shopping, luxurious spas and world-class nightlife are all staples in Miami Beach. Just make sure to bring plenty of loot — Miami Beach can be done on a budget, but you'll severely limit your options and it won't be nearly as fun.
