Miami Beach’s Rich Arts and Culture Scene

mbArtMiami Beach may have developed an “unofficial” reputation for its hedonism, but if you look a little deeper beyond its exterior of sun, drinks, and fun, you’ll notice that the barrier island has as much substance as it does style. The city is packed with plenty of cultural hotspots for anyone looking to indulge their inner artist, history buffs or those looking to enrich themselves.

At Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, we’re proud to say that our location is perfectly situated near a myriad of museums and galleries for one to explore. For example, the Wolfsonian–FIU museum is just a ten minute walk from our Miami Beach hotel. This museum, located in the Art Deco District features a pair of collections dating back to the late 1800s and mid-1900s. Best of all, the museum frequently hosts free guided tours on Fridays, so you won’t have to spend a dime to discover some fascinating pieces of history.

The Art Deco District is home to more than 900 intriguingly designed buildings, a paradise for architecture aficionados. It was designated a U.S. historic district in 1979 and features work by many notable architects such as L. Murray Dixon and Henry Hohauser. As you’re exploring the classic structures, you’ll also find notable sights like Casa Casuarina, the lavish home of late fashion designer Gianni Versace.

The Bass Museum of Art, World Erotic Art Museum and more are just minutes from our South Beach hotel. Check out all of the artwork and history, just a short distance from our hotel, where you can enjoy the comforts of your suite and our amenities like the glass bottom pool.
