As Christina Aguilera once said, I also love to go to art and history museums. Wise words, friends, and if Christina Aguilera were here this Saturday, shed surely attend the Miami-Dade incarnation of International Museum Day. Admission to all participating institutions is free, and those who sign up for new memberships will receive 10 percent off. Many museums will also have special programming. The Bass, for instance, will have two kids workshops called Build an Art Museum and The Museum and Me, while the Wolfsonian will display a collection of handcrafted books made by local students. Other participating institutions are Vizcaya, the Frost Museum, MoCA, Miami Science Museum, the Bakehouse, the Lowe, MAM, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Miami Childrens Museum, the Jewish Museum of Florida, the Haitian Heritage Museum, ArtCenter/South Florida, and the Historical Museum of Southern Florida.
