Family Programs

  • Family Programs

Each month, family programs offer adults and children the opportunity to make meaningful memories at Vizcaya. Programs are different each month, and highlight art, history and Vizcaya’s natural environments so there is always something new to do at Vizcaya together!

Family programs are designed for children ages 6-12 and their families. Get a family membership today and enjoy the benefits of membership all year long – including free monthly family programs!
