Miami Art Museum

One of the three final exhibitions before MAM makes the move to its new digs this fall is "New Work Miami 2013." The exhibition was introduced during Miami Art Week and is on view through May 12. "New Work" celebrates our local artists and the creative energy that makes Miami go round with newly commissioned work by a dozen Miami-based artists, highlighting the diverse and innovative artistic practices of Miami's artists. From site-specific installations to sculpture to painting and photography, it's one of the most well-rounded art exhibits in Miami. Among the featured artists are Gideon Barnett, Bhakti Baxter, Sinisa Kukec, Odalis Valdivieso, George Sánchez-Calderón, and Tom Scicluna.

The Bargain: You won't have to pay the $8 admission price.

Miami Children's Museum

Few things in the world are as entertaining as kids doing the Dougie. January is Fitness Month at MCM and just in time for the last weekend of winter break, they're hosting "Hip Hop by Panache." This Sunday, January 6, kiddos can learn some fly moves with step-by-step help from instructors from Panache Dance School. Now that your kids have to keep up with with Blue Ivy and Kimye's soon-to-be mini-moguls, this may be a wise plan for this weekend.

This weekend is also your last chance to see The Wizard of Oz exhibition before it continues its tour around the country.

The Bargain: Regular admission costs $15, or $12 if you can prove you're a Florida resident. Imagine all the money that can be banked if you bring a whole family of Bank of America cardholders this weekend.
