Peréz Art Museum Miami (PAMM)

An hour sitting on one of the swinging chairs on PAMM’s epic porch – which has sweeping views of PortMiami, the Intracoastal, and the Macarthur Causeway – is worth a visit it all on its own. So is having brunch at Verde, their great on-site restaurant. But you should definitely leave time to explore the museum, which features contemporary art with an emphasis on Latin American works (big deal Miami developer Jorge Peréz donated a bunch of his personal collection). Even the building, designed by Herzog and de Meuron, is a work of art. Keep an eye on their calendar, which is always brimming with events and special offers on admission. Admission is free the first Thursday and second Saturday of every month.
