SECRET DOORS VIDEO TOUR
DISCOVER VIZCAYA FROM HOME
Like many Gilded Age homes, Vizcaya has its share of hidden passages and doors. None of these can be seen during a regular visit or private tour, so the museum has created this special video tour to share its secrets with you.
In Vizcaya’s “Secret Doors” video tour, Deputy Director for Collections and Curatorial Affairs Remko Jansonius takes you behind-the-scenes to show you different hidden doors and passages throughout the estate — formerly an exclusive member perk.
