About Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is an accredited museum and National Historic Landmark that preserves the Miami estate of agricultural industrialist James Deering to engage the Miami community and its visitors in learning through the arts, history and the environment. Vizcaya was built between 1914 and 1922 and became Deering’s winter home when the Main House was completed in December 2016; the estate celebrates its centennial beginning in late 2016 and continuing through 2017. Vizcaya is one of the most intact remaining examples from this era in United States history, when the nation’s wealthy entrepreneurs built lavish estates inspired by the stately homes of Europe. Vizcaya features a Main House, a collection of art and design, furnishings and sculpture; 10 acres of formal gardens; a rockland hammock (native forest); a mangrove shoreline; the Vizcaya Café and Shop presented by A Joy Wallace Catering, Design and Special Events; and a historic village with buildings, grounds and gardens that is undergoing restoration. Located on Biscayne Bay at 3251 South Miami Avenue, Vizcaya is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
