THE BASS IS BACK!
Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum is back and will open its newly transformed space to the public on Sunday, October 29, 2017 with solo exhibitions by Ugo Rondinone and Pascale Marthine Tayou. These exhibitions debut following a major renovation of the museum, which has increased programmable space by nearly 50 percent within the existing footprint, creating a new internal structure with four additional galleries, a museum shop, café and designated education facility.
In honor of this momentous occasion for our museum, we invite you to celebrate with us! Admission to the museum is FREE to all for the duration of the day, plus enjoy contests, tours and special activities for the whole family!
Go on an art trek with the entire family! Grab an 'Explore Kit' and your tour guide will take you and your family on an interactive exploration of the museum. There's fun for everyone – creativity awaits! This tour is ideal for families with children ages 3-5 years old.
