15 Fantastic Free Events in Miami


14. Museum of Contemporary Art

Situated in the heart of North Miami at 770 NE 125th St., the Museum of Contemporary Art is a great place to take a break from partying under the hot Miami sun and get some culture of the international postmodern variety. Cool off in the AC and peruse their exhibitions of Ars Memoria, which features favorites from MoCA’s permanent collection. Even better, view the sublime sculptures of Polish artist Jerry Kedziora. Best of all, they have free live jazz or folk music starting at 8 pm every last Friday of the month. Ocean Drive might have cocktails served in giant fish bowls and an all night party scene, but for a serene respite from party central, MoCA is the perfect antidote. Built in 1996 in a postmodern design by Charles Gwathmey, the museum also has art programs for the little ones throughout the year to inspire future artists.
