Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Vizcaya is a National Historic Landmark; we're also a museum owned by Miami-Dade County and accredited by the American Association of Museums. We invite you to visit this serene and stunningly beautiful retreat in the heart of Miami.
Built by agricultural industrialist James Deering in 1916, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, and a rockland hammock (native forest).
One of the most magnificent museums to be seen in the United States, containing an extremely important collection of artworks and historic artifacts. The Venetian-inspired construction of this palace by the sea uses local coquina limestone. Vizcaya is a lens through which to learn about art, interior design, architecture, landscape design, horticulture, and the environment.
From Comfort Suites Miami Airport North, just take a short 10 mile drive southeast and you'll arrive at Vizcaya.
