The Latin American Art Museum of Miami offers a place to both Latin artists and the visitor a comfortable and well lit place to view the contemporary art being done in Miami and Latin America. The staff and directors are knowledgeable and friendly and informed. There are mini studios where one might find artists working and is able to talk with them. The prices are very reasonable. A visit to Miami without visiting this museum is not complete. Highly recommend it. - inesan1717 from New York
