A visit to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens arouses your senses. First, pass through Vizcaya's lush subtropical forest and approach the Main House along a fountain- and foliage-lined walkway. The inside of the house is filled with treasures from around the world. Outside, enjoy spectacular views of Biscayne Bay and the serene, thought-provoking gardens and the statues that inhabit them. Marvel at the gallery of orchids in the David A. Klein Orchidarium. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a National Historic Landmark, and you are invited to visit this stunningly beautiful retreat from the bustle of modern Miami. Vizcaya was built by American industrialist James Deering, who wintered on the property from 1916-1925. Today, the extraordinary European-inspired estate includes a house filled with art and furnishings, ten acres of gardens on Biscayne Bay, a native hardwood hammock, and a historic village that is being restored for public enjoyment. With its phenomenal human-made and natural resources, Vizcaya introduces visitors to America's Gilded Age, and Miami's place in this history-a time when America's wealthiest industrialists created lavish homes inspired by the palaces of Europe.

Must see in Miami
By vw94 Verified Reviewer from Leoben, Austria on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

We used the Miami Go Select Card and had no problem at the entrance. Everything worked well. We decided to do the Audioguide-Tour and this I really can recommend. The Museum is really cool also for Europeans because it is really funny to guess if the furniture is really old or if it only looks like this. It is really impressive to see this building and the gardens.

Comments about Smart Destinations :

I have been to Vizcaya many times. It is worth the visit. If you are into details and have the time to spend at Vizcaya, I recommend the audio tour. The audio tour provides a thorough explanation of the features in the gardens and the house. It is very hot outside in the summer, be sure to drink plenty of water.

It was ok
By M Verified Reviewer from Virginia Beach, VA on

Comments about Smart Destinations :

If you like history and gardens, this place was good. For the poeple who do not, do not go to this place. You can not take pictures when you go through the house.

We weren't sure if we should do this one. Boy were we glad we did. Absolutely gorgeous AND facsinating. If you love history, architecture, or just plain quality you will love this. The museum was absolutely gorgeous, as were the gardens. This was a good one.
