A taste of Europe in Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens once served as the home of businessman James Deering. Begun in 1910, with architecture and gardens modeled on the Mediterranean Revival style, the estate was Deering's winter residence from 1916 until his death in 1925. Today, the museum and gardens attract visitors who are drawn by the villa's collection of antique furniture, tapestries, paintings, and decorative arts. The seaside gardens brim with fountains, sculptures, gazebos, trails, and pools. The estate frequently hosts dignitaries from around the world.

  • I've been to Vizcaya 8 times now, and the estate is impressive. But the new ticketing system and tour app is unworkable. You must buy tickets online in advance and are emailed a bar code. But what...

  • Beautiful landscape, unique decor and tons of history packed into this place. Lots of art decor and history. The complimentary audio tour provides a great selection paced tool too explore this marvelous mansion. Tons of nooks and crannies to explore. The gardens are breathtaking and beautiful. Between the main building, the gazebo, and the gardens, there is no lack of photo opportunities. Spent hours exploring and enjoyed every minute.
  • Very cool! I loved visiting. Beautiful home and gardens. Great info throughout with context on the lives of the family. Very busy and kind of pricey at $25 per ticket. There were a bunch of older people who didn’t get the concept of a digital ticket so that held up the line, we probably had to wait 20 minutes for a process that could have taken 5. Maybe fire signage or a separate line for those that need assistance? Also man, I got so sweaty exploring the gardens haha. More water fountains would have been appreciated but that might just be a me-thing. Inside the home was air conditioned which was nice, lots of places to sit and appreciate the architecture. It was very busy when I visited so we had to wait to read some info or see in to some rooms. We went on Sunday and we’re there around 11 so definitely prime time for this experience.
