The Miami Museum Month


The Miami Museum Month is one of the most important cultural events in Miami. It is an annual event which allows both Miami locals and tourists to enjoy the wide variety of museums that the city has to offer. The Miami Museum Month began in 2009 and takes place for the entirety of the month of May every year.

During the Miami Museum Month, anyone with a membership to one of the participating venues and museums can get in for free to all the other museums. Memberships can be pre-existing, but locals can also purchase the memberships during the Miami Museum Month in the "join one, see them all" offer. This offer can save participants over $50 per adult in admission fees.

Out of town visitors can take advantage of another Miami Museum Month offer; the "buy one, get one free" admission to any of the participating museums and cultural attractions in Miami. This offer only applies to visitors who live outside of the Miami Dade County, and they must show proof of residency with a valid ID that they live outside of Miami.
