I lived in the area for three years before I visited the Lowe Museum. Since it's on the University of Miami campus, I dismissed as uninteresting which was a mistake. It has some excellent collections of native North and South American art; American art; and photography; among others. Like most museums, most of the holdings aren't on view at any... More

It had been too many years since I visited the Lowe. We thought about it several times and finally made it! It was totally worth the trip. The collection has expanded and improved! The African, including Egypt, collection is note worthy! The Native people's collection is also. The Asian collection is also off to a good start. Most noteworthy is... More

With most museums focusing on contemporary art, this university museum shows a bit of everything. Good Native American, African, Asia, pre-Columbian collections. Good painting collections. It's a shame the gift shop has closed - I always enjoyed getting unusual presents there.

My wife does a lot of glass art work for fun and we went to the Lowe to see their collection. The campus was very quite, and we basically had the entire museum to ourselves. Several of their galleries we down for exhibit changes, so they reduced the ticket price 50% which I thought was nice. The glass art gallery... More

We were surprised at how eclectic a collection they have. From African art to Native American, to modern studio glass to paintings from various centuries, If there is a tour, take it. the docents are very knowledgeable. Their pieces are exquisite and very well displayed..

From very contemporary, to ancient artifacts, and works from everywhere in between, this small museum is worth seeing.

This museum was a perfect excuse to see the beautiful campus of the University of Miami. The museum has a small but nicely curated collection. A bit more modern art and also indigenous art - some nice early European as well. Parking is most convenient in the Pavia structure - access to this is off the Dixie Hwy. Have a... More

this rather small museum has a fairly good latinamerican art collection. it is situated in the middle of the university of miami lovely campus, and they do hold one man exhibitions every once in a while which might be of interest to the local community. The annual sidewalk show art exhibition is of special interest to the local artists, and... More
