Visitor Services & Accessibility

The Museum of Art and Design, MDC Special Collections, and the Freedom Tower are temporarily closed for renovations. MOAD's new exhibitions will open in the fall.

MOAD is committed to providing a comfortable and engaging experience for all ages. Exhibition programs and activities are available to enhance your visit.

Strollers & Bags

Strollers and diaper bags are welcome at MOAD. Backpacks, shopping bags, and all other large bags are not allowed inside the galleries, but guests are welcome to drop them off at MOAD’s coat check, found at the Welcome Desk on the second floor. Staff members may refuse to accept other coat check items at their discretion, and MOAD is not responsible for items held at coat check.

Please note that due to COVID-19, complimentary bag check service will be self-service. We are unable to store oversized bags or luggage.


MOAD’s ADA entrance is on the south side of the building on Northeast Sixth Street, between Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast Second Avenue.
