The City of Miami Beach is working alongside some of the world’s best cultural institutions to provide a night of free, unique and unforgettable experiences. Every third Thursday of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Miami Beach will come alive with culture as various institutions and buildings open their doors to give you just a taste of what they have to offer. From backstage tours, exhibition openings, and free film screenings in the park, there will be something for everyone. All events are free unless otherwise noted.

The majority of the programming is accessible by foot and by bike, but we will also offer dedicated free trolleys that will drop you off and pick you up at our dedicated Culture Crawl stops – check out our monthly map to find your closest stop. Start where you would like and explore at your own leisure!
