Pérez Art Musuem Miami's mission is to be a leader in the presentation, study, interpretation, and care of international modern and contemporary art, while representing Miami-Dade and cherishing the unique viewpoint of its peoples. Through our exhibitions and programs, we aim to encourage everyone to see art as an incentive for genuine human interaction, communication, and exchange.

Free Second Saturday is a monthly program for museum visitors featuring hands-on activities and exhibition tours for children and adults. Guests receive free admission during museum hours.
