What was once a private subtropical home in the 1910s, is today a National Historic Landmark, and accredited museum, AND a great destination for any family day out in Miami - we are talking about the stunning Vizcaya Museum and Gardens!
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a great way to learn all about local history and culture, in an environment like no other in Miami.
Set on 11 beautiful acres of grounds, the property itself features 34 public rooms, spread out on several floors, ready for the whole family to explore. Want to know something really special about Vizcaya?
Inspired by the stately homes of Europe, it happens to be one of the most intact remaining examples from the early 20th century in US history!
As you explore, you'll see the incredible decorative art collection, as well as all those acres of formal gardens, a native forest, mangrove shore AND even a historic village that will tell the story of Vizcaya's rich history!
There are guided tours available for purchase (online only) which last 45 minutes. These are a great way to explore the first floor and gardens in more detail.
You can also check out that historic village via the Vizcaya Village Tour if you wanted to go that extra mile, offering a general introduction and overview of the history of the buildings, plus staff like over a century ago!
