Visitors should be aware and cautious of the many steps and uneven floors and terrain throughout Vizcaya's Main House, gardens and grounds.
Photography and Video
Guests are welcome to take photographs or videos outside only. For personal or family portrait photo shoots as well as commercial photography and video shoots, please the see the regulations here.
Drawing and Painting
Vizcaya has traditionally served as a home and an inspiration to artists of all mediums. The estate welcomes artists looking to sketch, draw, and paint on-site. Because Vizcaya is not a park but rather is a National Historic Landmark and different from other museums, regulations are in place for such activities and they can be found here.
Food and Drink
We regret that you may not bring your own food or drinks to Vizcaya, unless you belong to a school or college group.
Visitors with paid museum admission may enter the beautifully renovated Vizcaya Café and Shop located next to the swimming pool, where you can enjoy a wide selection of gourmet menu options. The café also offers a children’s menu.
Food or drinks may not be opened or consumed in the Main House.
Backpacks and Diaper Bags
We do not have a bag check. Our security officers reserve the right to review bags upon entry and prohibit large bags that may damage the collections. Large bags attached to strollers are not allowed. Baby carriers must be worn on your chest.
Only single strollers may enter the house; strollers are not permitted in the Breakfast Room on the second floor due to its fragile paintings. Please be careful to avoid contact with doorways, walls or furnishings in the Main House. Larger strollers are allowed only in the gardens.
Vizcaya does not have a public elevator. You may either carry the stroller up the stairs to visit Vizcaya's upper floors or leave it outside the front entrance to the house.
Restrooms (men's and women's) with changing tables are located on the south side of the Main House. Diaper changing is not permitted inside the Main House.
Vizcaya is a fragile place. Please do not touch museum objects. Do not lean or climb on doors, gates and walls. And please do not stand or sit on statuary, fountains or railings. Thank you.
Only registered service dogs are allowed at Vizcaya.
