What Miami really needs is a museum that speaks to our interests. Where, for instance, is the I-95 Roadside Collision Drivetarium? Or the William Brickell Institute for the $18 Gin and Tonic? Couldn't you spend an entire Sunday at the Julia Tuttle Lost Airline Baggage Museum? Alas, until some savvy cultural maven develops these projects, we'll have to settle for the ones already in place: Miami Art Museum, Miami Children's Museum, The Wolfsonian-FIU, MoCA, Vizcaya, CiFo, and the 10 other venues participating in Miami Museum Members Month, happening right now.
Here's the deal: If you belong to any Miami museum, you can go to any of the others for free throughout the month of February. Call 305-535-2631, or visit www.joinoneseethemall.com for a complete list of museums, exhibitions, cocktail hours, family days, and educational lectures. Your other free option is the world-famous Miami Concrete and Fender Landscape Museum, open on the southbound Palmetto Expressway every day between 3 and 8 p.m., but admission gets you into only one other venue: SUV Road Rage Gardens.
