Concierge.com's insider take:
Located downtown in the Miami-Dade Cultural Center, this museum showcases the diverse international makeup of the community in its display of Miami-based artists and art of the Western Hemisphere in general. Founded in 1996, it's not yet a major institution, but it has been gradually expanding its collection and raising its profile; Terence Riley, formerly of New York's Museum of Modern Art, is the director, and architects Herzog & de Meuron are creating a new space downtown next to Biscayne Bay (due in 2012).
Open Tuesdays through Fridays 10 am to 5 pm, Saturdays noon to 5 pm.
