Haitian Heritage Museum
To celebrate Haiti's bicentennial, the Haitian Heritage Museum was founded in 2004. In the heart of Little Haiti, a vibrant, colorful and welcoming neighborhood that is gaining recognition, the museum's mission is to bring values the artistic, cultural, literary, cinematographic and historical heritage of the Pearl of the West Indies. Currently, the exhibition Rites of Passage presented in collaboration with the National Museums of Kenya, offers five rites of passage of five cultures that can be found in Miami.

American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora
The contagious energy of Miami is largely influenced by the latina culture, and the proximity of Cuba is probably for something. We just have to spend an evening in Little Havana to understand it. The Museum of the Cuban Diaspora, nicknamed The Cuban, presents the works of some of the most prolific Cuban artists, writers and thinkers. Until May 2018, Luis Cruz Azaceta's works exploring the themes of terrorism, dictators, war and exile, who fled the Castro regime at the age of 18, were exhibited there.

The Miami Beach Museum of Contemporary Art, The Bass, has just reopened after a major expansion that adds nearly 50% to its gallery space. Despite the great works commissioned by the architects Arata Isozaki and David Gauld, we can still very much appreciate the Art Deco influences of the facade of the 1930s building by entering the site by Collins Park. It is here that Sylvie Fleury's neon-shaped work Eternity Now and the impressive colored sculpture by Ugo Rondinone Miami Mountain are on display.

In the heart of Miami Beach's Art Deco District, the Wolfsonian Museum's collection includes some 180,000 items ranging from the Industrial Revolution to the end of the Second World War. It is through the history of exhibits that we present the social, political and technological history of a time of great change that spans a century, from 1850 to 1950. Until April 2018, the exhibit Selling the Golden Leaf: Exoticism in Tobacco Advertising features some of the most innovative tobacco advertising campaigns from the late 19th century e century.
