The Bass Museum of Art is one of the most prestigious art museums in Miami Beach. Situated in the historic Art Deco district, the museum was founded in 1964 by Jewish immigrants John Bass and Joanna Redlich, who arrived in Miami from Vienna. The couple were dedicated art collectors and bequeathed more than 500 works to the city of Miami beach, including Old Masters and sculptures.

On your self-guided visit to the museum, you will have a chance to explore some of the permanent collections, featuring works from a variety of noted artists. The Open Storage section displays more than 70 artworks loaned to the museum, representing a variety of media and also many geographic regions, spanning North and South America, Europe and Africa.

The museum also promotes a culture of lifelong learning, regularly hosting talks, workshops and events designed to educate and inspire visitors. The onsite Creativity Center, containing a multimedia lab and 2 classrooms, is the focal point for the educational programs at The Bass Museum of Art, and is one of the largest museum-based educational facilities in the county. There are also a number of spaces in the museum for visitors to relax, such as the cafe and museum gardens.

Except from the main entrance, there are two entrances with ramps and handrails suitable for wheelchair users.
