About MB’s Latest Tradition:
Miami Beach Culture Crawl is an art and cultural happening offering complimentary admission to some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions. Special programming includes open studios and galleries, outdoor films, live music, exclusive tours, night gardens and free trolley service to each location.
Transportation: The City of Miami Beach has selected exclusive trolleys, which will provide free transportation to Culture Crawl attendees. These trolleys will follow a specially curated route to drop off attendees within a block of our cultural institutions, all while featuring an on-board tour guide from the Miami Design Preservation League which will be able to provide riders with a block-by-block history of this great city. This month, experience live music on selected trolleys!
Additionally, the institutions featured within the crawl are within blocks of each other, so attendees may also explore the map on foot or on bike.
