Travel through time and experience the largest privately owned transportation museum in the world! Car aficionados and novices alike will appreciate the great collection that Michael Dezer has amassed over the years.
When you’re driving on Biscayne Boulevard, you can see what looks like an old gas station with a few classic cars and a sign overhead that says “Dezer Collection.” Growing up in the area, I must have passed it a million times. I wondered what all the fuss was about, especially since it looked so small. Boy was I wrong! Turns out the two buildings that hold the collection are around the back. All together, there are over 250,000 square feet with over 1,000 vehicles!
Right away, you’re hit with bright lights and incredible memorabilia. Now, I’m not really into cars. But I can appreciate the dedication and passion it took to create this collection. Plus, it turns out there weren’t just cars. Aside from vintage cars, there were also cars from various movies, motorcycles, scooters, bicycles, and military vehicles. Scattered around there were also keepsakes that went along with the era of the cars (I fell in love with an old school Coke machine). My favorite exhibits were the Hollywood Cars of the Stars (which included the Gotham Gallery) and the James Bond Exhibition (which included a plane and helicopter!).
We had a great time admiring the Dezer Collection. I think it’s a great way to spend a few hours in Miami, especially if you’re trying to find something to do that’s inside. 😉
