WSVN -- If you haven't been to the new Perez Art Museum Miami or PAMM, there are so many reasons to go. For starters the museum loves the word free.

Deputy Director for External Affairs, Leann Standish: ""We really wanted for PAMM to be Miami's living room. We want you to hang out here. It is one of Miami's most spectacular venues on the water on the bay. You needn't pay to visit the museum, you can come sit on the steps, our Wi-Fi is free."

The museum is constantly changing from the spectacular outdoor hanging gardens.

Bernadette Alfonso, patron: "I thought they were the most striking feature. Very creative way of using space."

To what's inside.

Bernadette Alfonso: "The Ai Weiwei exhibit which is a special exhibit it was actually named one of the top 10 exhibitions of the year in the Huffington Post."

Looking for a cultural night out? Thursday night is the night at the museum.

Leann Standish-Deputy Director for External Affairs: "Thursdays are really special because the museum is open until 9 p.m. The first Thursday of every month is free and there is always a program in the auditorium."

And hey, even if you think you don't like art, we bet you like cocktails and live music every third Thursday you can gather on the museum's portico overlooking the bay for happy hour.

Leann Standish: "We bring DJ's in from all over the world, come for happy hour cocktails."

Kirk Wild, visitor: "The setting is amazing overlooking the water with the cruise ships and the downtown it's beautiful."

Daniela Frewa, visitor: "Great for date night, come and you can watch the exhibitions, and then have a cocktail, maybe dinner."

Thursday is also the only night you can make dinner reservations at the museum's Stephen Starr restaurant Verde.

Verde General Manager Rory Gurland: "Some of the favorites are our squash blossom pizza. I really love the kale and farro salad. The himachi ponzu is a nice light dish."

If you have a little artist in training take them to PAMM's second Saturdays."

Bernadette Alfonso: "From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. there is art making activities. The museum entrance is free."

Emily Gonzalez: "I learned many different artists and different paintings they did. I'm getting inspired to do new things."

Anthony Milian: "Art just isn't to look at, it's meant to be something."

No matter who you are, PAMM is your canvas to create what kind of day or night you want to have there.

Big tip on how to get there: Take the free Metromover to Museum Park Station. Admission to the museum is $12 for adults and free for kids.
