Boasting over 300 boutiques and shops, Aventura Mall has established itself as the best place to shop in Miami as well as one of the top shopping centers in the United States. But shopping can be exhausting. We love to shop more than the next person, but our shopping attention span just isn’t where it should be. That’s why we’ve compiled the top five things to do at Aventura Mall (besides shop), because we’re so much more than just a shopping destination.
Aventura Mall has an impressive art collection consisting of over 20 museum-quality pieces. Discover impressive works by world-renowned artists as you take a stroll around the mall or join one of our guided tours!
Here are only a few of the art works you’ll find!
“Arrows and Flower" by Takashi Murakami & Virgil Abloh
The Andy Monument by Rob Pruitt

Cool off at Gorillas in the Mist on a particularly hot day. Designed by the Haas Brothers, Gorillas in the Mist is a whimsical fountain comprised of three large-scale bronze gorillas and four massive bronze trees. Splashing around in this artwork is more than welcome on hot Miami days.

The mall also has its fair share of interactive art. The Aventura Slide Tower designed by Carsten Höller is not only a towering landmark, but also an exhilarating ride. Designed in order to bring a sensation of delight and madness, the 93-foot-tall sculpture is a fun stop after a long day at the Mall. Don’t miss out on the chance to slide down this work of art!
