On Tuesday, October 23rd, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens will host a My Miami Story conversation.
It will be a relaxed gathering for us to have a snack, share and connect around our experiences of and about Vizcaya. We’ll share our personal stories about how we came to Greater Miami, why we stay here and explore what Vizcaya can do to make this community a better place to live.
Join us! Participating will add your voice to a countywide conversation about who we are as a community, where we’re going and how we can get there.
Imagine Vizcaya as a place unlike any other, at the far reaches of civilization. Designed with whimsy and leisure in mind, movie nights, tea parties and dressing for the occasion were not uncommon. Take a cue from the past during this month’s community program, a screening of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland complemented with high tea along Biscayne Bay, Alice, The Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and you, in your finest tea-party attire!
High tea service from 6:30-7:30 p.m., film starts at 7:00, p.m. No admission after 8:00 p.m.

A rare evening monthly family program! Explore the estate for things alive in the nighttime! Take black-light walks as you search for glowing insects; use lightsheets to attract things with wings; night hikes in search of reptiles are always fun; and see if you can find a bat on site! Create your own shadow-puppet performance to tell the story of South Florida’s ecosystem and more. Drinks and light bites available for purchase at Vizcaya’s Café and Shop.
Imagine Vizcaya’s story as the iguana that lives on the East Terrace, the owl in Hammock, the manatee in the Bay, the reptile that holds the curtains or the dragon outside the northwest door in the 2nd floor gallery. Then, with the help of professional story-tellers, use the museum’s rich collections of drawings and letters to make your story a one-of-a-kind!
Make festive memories at Vizcaya during the holiday season. Vizcaya’s Main House will feature holiday décor typical in the 1920s when Mr. Deering spent the winter season at Vizcaya. Take a tour, sip hot chocolate and sing along with carolers during one of Vizcaya’s most popular annual programs!
Tickets include new memberships. Existing members sign in with your email to get discounted tickets.
The winter holidays are special to Vizcaya because James Deering, the owner, came to the estate on Christmas Day in 1916. To celebrate the occasion and the holiday season, each year Vizcaya decorates the Main House as it might have been 100 years ago when Deering was in residence. Visit the Main House anytime during Vizcaya’s normal operating hours to see the festive décor!
