Tour description provided by Viator

Get a behind-the-scenes look at Miami’s thriving art districts! With an expert art district curator as your guide, explore Miami Midtown, the Miami Design District and the Wynwood Art District and visit several signature galleries and museums to admire and learn about an array of modern and contemporary art, from photography to sculpture to giant murals to conceptual art installations. You’ll then be treated to a gourmet lunch or dinner at a celebrity chef restaurant!

Hop on your shuttle at Shops at Midtown, an outdoor shopping area designed to mimic New York City's SoHo neighborhood. From here, your guide, an expert curator in the arts, will take you on a tour of Miami’s three prominent art districts: Midtown Miami, the Miami Design District and Wynwood (specifically the Wynwood Art District). These are all thriving hubs for rising artists, and house a variety of art galleries, museums and special exhibitions and installations.

You'll visit the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, the Rubell Family Collection and the de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space, where you'll spend time admiring an extensive art collection with your guide.

The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse is located in Wynwood. Housed in a large, newly converted warehouse, this collection features contemporary and vintage photography, video, sculpture and art installations.

Also in Wynwood is the Rubell Family Collection, one of the world’s largest privately owned contemporary art collections. Featuring well-known and internationally established artists, the RFC actively showcases emerging artists working at the forefront of contemporary art.

The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space in the Miami Design District features an array of modern and contemporary art, but it’s best known for providing art workshops, artist residencies and education in the visual arts.

During your shuttle ride from place to place, you’ll pass the trendy boutiques and urban-chic stores that give these areas their unique allure.

You’ll then visit the famous Wynwood Walls and the Wynwood Doors. These two adjacent outdoor exhibits feature giant canvases, murals, graffiti and street art created by some of the world’s most influential contemporary artists.

After your gallery visits, you’ll be treated to a gourmet lunch or dinner (depending on option selected) at a celebrity restaurant such as Mercadito or Shokudo. You'll then be taken back to Shops at Midtown to conclude your tour.
