Fodor's Review

Currently in an Edward Larrabee Barnes–designed building that's considered an architectural masterpiece, activists started this museum in a nearby storefront more than 50 years ago. Now part of Nova Southeastern University and under the leadership of Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater of MOCA (Musuem of Contemporary Art Miami) fame, the museum hosts world-class touring exhibits and has an impressive permanent collection of 6,000 works of 20th-century European and American art, including pieces by Picasso, Calder, Dalí, Mapplethorpe, Warhol, and Stella, as well as works by celebrated Ashcan School artist William Glackens. The lobby-level store and café combo, Museum Café, is a cool, local hangout.
