For years the dwellers of other cities ragged on Miami for being uncultured. This town didn’t have the cultural cred of cities like New York, London, or Paris. Then Wynwood exploded, along with all kinds of Art Basel events, and voila! Miami suddenly became the head cheerleader that everyone wants to feel up behind the bleachers. Well, some of us locals know that while we may not have been on par with London or New York, we have always had plenty of museums and attractions to satisfy our cultural inclinations. Sometimes, however, we just didn’t have the money to visit the Miami Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, HistoryMiami, and the World Erotic Art Museum on a regular basis. Miami Museum Month gives us the opportunity to enjoy all that Miami has to offer without rubbing elbows with savagely drunk Second Saturday art walkers. Art lovers can enjoy “buy one, get one free” admission to participating museums, and when they purchase a museum membership, they’ll get a free pass to the rest of the museums valid for all of May. It’s like bar hopping, only without the hangover and three-figure tab. Visit miamimuseummonth.com.
