International Museum Day
Guide to PAMM
In honor of International Museum Day, we paid a visit to one of our favorite places in the city – our go-to space for igniting creativity whenever we need a breath of beauty and bay views – the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
Whether you’ve never been to the Pérez Art Museum Miami – or PAMM, as it’s known locally – or you’re a seasoned second Saturday attendee, follow along as we take you on a visual journey and experience one of the city’s most beautiful spaces.

PAMM has quickly become a cultural staple of the Magic City, and with good reason – the museum exhibits modern and contemporary art from the Americas, with a focus on works from Latin America and the Caribbean.
Its campus sits directly on Biscayne Bay, with a view that would surely make the MoMA jealous. The beautiful thing about PAMM is that it lends itself to be whatever you want it to be – a space for reflecting on aesthetics, a place to enjoy the shade beneath a hanging garden, or simply as a window to a serene view of the city.
PAMM is also home to a carefully curated shop with one-of-a-kind gifts. From books to toys to handmade cards and jewelry, you can find just about anything here. If you’re in the mood for a bite or a drink, visit Verde just around the corner - there's a sit-down restaurant and coffee bar for quick snacks.
Aside from their permanent collection and exhibitions, PAMM hosts monthly events that cater to both kids and adults, from crafting and painting to movie nights and live music. Admission is free every first Thursday and second Saturday of the month, making the museum easily accesible to everyone.
