In Miami Beach, the contemporary art museum just celeb­rated its 50th anniversary. Here, in the first 20 minutes, one should explore the eclectic holdings, donated by local collectors Johanna and John Bass, ranging from daubs by Daumier to a huge 16th-century Flemish tapestry.

For the next ten minutes, stroll around the museum’s premises, an artful fusion of a stark, temple-like former library designed in 1930 by Russell Pancoast with a ’90s white-box extension by architect Arata Iso­zaki. The Japanese minimalist has been recruited for yet another expansion, set to begin in June 2015, which will add about 10,000 square feet of exhibit space to the blueprint. At 2100 Collins Ave.; bassmuseum.org.
