Perez Art Museum, Miami
Print Leave a comment
Perez Art Museum is located on the water and offers glorious public spaces for all to enjoy. When you arrive you walk past giant hanging planters to a wide open patio area. You run down stairs to Museum Park and walk under dozens of coconut trees to little hills where you can shout "I'm the king of the castle!" Here, you watch the cruise ships in the harbor.
Up on the patio with its high columns, you discover swings that almost put you to sleep as you sway back and forth in the shade enjoying the cool breeze off the water. What a perfect spot on a hot day- shade and a breeze!
A casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating facing the water, Verde, offers organic fare.
The museum itself is two levels filled with modern art that is very hard to connect to. It was not worth the entrance fee, and if I'd have known, I would have spent the money in the gift shop instead in order to support the museum and its lovely outdoor areas.
There is nothing inside the museum for children to do, though they enjoy the gift shop. For a museum with items everywhere for kids to touch and enjoy, so that the parents can then take time to read the plaques in the museum, check out History Miami.
