Comments about Smart Destinations :
If you are close by, definitely walk to the museum. The outside is cool (although they are building that science building behind it), it's right on the water, there are several sitting (possible picnic) areas, and the most beautiful piece of art is hanging right outside. But... it's a contemporary art museum. There are some cool things but most of it is more statements than visually interesting. If you have the MiamiGo card you might as well stop in, it's a cool building, but unless you love contemporary art it's not worth the time.
