More Is Better: The Miami Auto Museum

If you were ever wondering, those commercials with the stoic guy and the kids sitting around a table hammer home the point: more is better than less. As a classic car lover, a visit to an exhibition would be a lot of fun, but why settle for just one when you can have more.

The Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection is all about providing visitors with more. There are actually seven different exhibitions that you can experience when you visit this amazing facility. The museum spans 250,000 square feet, and there are over 1000 of the most unique vehicles that you will ever see.

This is the rundown: European Classics, American Classics, Bikes, Motorcycles, and Scooters, Micro Cars, Military Vehicles, the James Bond Exhibition, and the Hollywood Cars of the Stars.

The Hollywood exhibition is especially cool. It features vehicles that were prominent in television shows and movies. There is a 1948 Ford from the movie Grease; the 1959 Cadillac from Ghostbusters that is called the Ecto-1; the Ferrari from Miami Vice; and the time machine 1981 Delorean from Back to the Future. Those are just a few of the cars on display at the Hollywood Cars of the Stars exhibition.

As you might imagine, the James Bond exhibition has its share of Aston Martins. There are actually six of them on display at the museum. However, without question, the most interesting vehicle in the James Bond exhibition is the “golden gun,” a T-55 Soviet tank.

The Miami Auto Museum is the brainchild of automobile collector and real estate developer Michael Dezer. His passion for cars was ignited after his father gave him a Vespa when he was just 16. Today he has the largest collection of Vespas in the world.

Miami is a great place to visit all year around, and it is a great destination for a road trip. Spring is here, and the time is right for a cruise down to the Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection. It is open seven days a week, from 10 o'clock in the morning to six o'clock in the evening. It is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The admission price for an adult is $25 for Building A, the portion of the museum that houses the American and European classics and the bikes, motorcycles and scooters. You can see the other exhibitions in Building B for another $25. (Nobody ever said more was especially cheap.)
