Art Deco Museum
The new Art Deco Museum is open 10am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday (Thursdays until 7pm) at 1001 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, FL.
Located inside the Art Deco Welcome Center, the Miami Beach Art Deco Museum was opened in 2014 by the Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL). The Museum allows tourists and locals to better understand the architectural heritage and community culture of Miami Beach. MDPL designed the museum to be educational and informational while reflecting the fun and glamor of Miami Beach.
A visit to the museum will teach about the three major historic design styles in Miami Beach:
- Mediterranean Revival
- Art Deco
- Miami Modern (MiMo)
Scale models of select buildings allow you to have a closer look at the elements of these structures. You will also learn about the development of the City Miami Beach. The Miami Beach Visual Memoirs project has recorded the personal stories of people who have been a part of Miami Beach’s story. MDPL’s history is also on display so that guests can learn more about preservation.
The museum includes a resource center, a children’s area, rotating exhibits and much more!
