F.A.Q.s

Do I need a separate ticket for a garden tour?
Yes. Free tour tickets are available on a first come, first-served basis after you’ve checked into the program at the orientation tent.

What time are tours offered?
The first tour of the night is always 6:30 p.m.  From there, we offer tours based on demand. The tour schedule is usually 7:00; 7:30, and 8:00 p.m. but that is subject to change.

How late can I arrive?
We open the gates at 6:00 p.m. and you can arrive as late as 8:00 p.m.  If you want to take a tour, we suggest you arrive no later than 7:45 p.m.

What should I wear?
While there is no dress code, Vizcaya’s pathways are often uneven gravel pathways. For that reason, we suggest comfortable footwear.  Additionally, the entire program is outside in the gardens.  Wearing (or bringing) a sweater or jacket is useful as it cools down once the sun sets.

Can I explore the Main House?
We designed this program to highlight the gardens. Parts of the Main House are accessible to members participating in the “Behind the Velvet Ropes” member-exclusive experience, but otherwise the house is not open.  Not a member? Join here!

Is there food or drinks?
Vizcaya’s Cafe and Shop are open to purchase light bites, refreshments or a glass of wine during the program.

Is there live music?
Yes! We are please to have live music on the East Terrace to listen to while enjoying the gorgeous bay views!

How come this isn’t every month?
Though we are all South Florida residents, and know how to live in South Florida weather, we suspend Gardens by Moonlight during the warmer (more humid) months.  We program something each month, though, and often the summer programs take place inside the Main House.  Keep in touch with us by subscribing to our eblasts or following us on Facebook.

Can I bring my kids?
Sure, but we do not design the Gardens by Moonlight programs for families.  If you are looking for something to do as a family, Vizcaya offers monthly family programs. Each one is different, and is designed for adults and kids to work together.  For more information, subscribe to our eblasts or follow us on Facebook.

Community Program: Seersucker Social
Mar 27 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Community Program: Seersucker Social @ Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Seersucker Social is back! Taking inspiration from the 1920s, when Vizcaya was James Deering’s private home, the museum is hosting a game night in the gardens complete with lawn bowling, yard dice, croquet and more.  Live music “jazzes” up the atmosphere and swing dancers guide you through the steps of popular dances of the era. Guests are encouraged to dress the part and get dandy by wearing their flapper dresses, seersucker jackets and other 1920s garb—because anything worth doing is worth doing right!

Community Program: Garden to Glass cocktail class
May 15 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Community Program: Garden to Glass cocktail class @ Vizcaya Village | Miami | Florida | United States

100 years ago, when Vizcaya was a private home, Miami was a dry city –alcohol was prohibited.  James Deering, Vizcaya’s owner, kept a supply of liquor hidden away on the estate anyway.  Based on the inventory of that liquor, it’s safe to say that Deering had a taste for gin and one might imagine him mixing cocktails with all manner of additions from Vizcaya’s edible gardens.  Take a page from Deering’s book and indulge in some salacious history while learning how to make cocktails popular in the 1910s and 20s using ingredients from Vizcaya’s kitchen garden.

21 years and older only.
