10 Reasons Why You Need to Visit the Paradox Museum Miami

Presstrip| During our most recent trip to Miami, we were invited to visit the Paradox Museum in the Wynwood area. The photos speak for themselves, so much fun was had by all.

Paradox Museum In Miami

The Miami Paradox Museum in Wynwood isn’t like a traditional museum. It’s an illusion museum. So I’m sure you can imagine just how much fun my kids—and us adults—had exploring all the exhibits. Staff are on hand to help with photos and help explain things if required.

If you’re looking for a different, entertaining, and air-conditioned attraction in Miami, then I highly recommend visiting Paradox.

Wynwood Buggie sand Paradox Museum Combo Tickets

Wynwood Buggies—a company that operates tours of Wynwood’s graffiti walls—has combination tickets with Paradox.. A standard Wynwood Buggie Tour for an adult on a weekday is $45 before tax.

A combo ticket, with the buggie tour and the Paradox Museum ticket for $56, making the museum only $11 per adult.

We absolutely loved the Wynwood Buggie Tour and found it so interesting to learn all about the area’s vibrant street art and the artists who put it there. The art is one of Wynwood’s top attractions.

Driving around on a golf buggy with a knowledgeable guide was a fun way to see it all. My kids will also agree that taking a golf buggy was way better than walking—but you can do a walking tour with them if you’d prefer.  

Parking Options

Although the Paradox Museum in Wynwood doesn’t have its own parking area, there is plenty of paid parking on the street just a short walk from the museum.
