Join the Miami Design Preservation League Today!

MDPL’s success can be judged by taking a look at today’s South Beach: the second-most visited destination in Florida, attracting students and families, as well as models and celebrities, all drawn to Miami Beach for its natural beauty, rich diversity, and high quality of life. The formerly deteriorating hotels have become luxurious resorts, thanks to MDPL’s strong belief in historic preservation and compatible development.


Help us continue to carry on our advocacy work and educational programs.

MDPL Preservation Support

Donation Total: $50.00 Yearly

Today, MDPL champions the legacy of its founders by influencing public policy and public actions in ways that are consistent with our original mission. That means:

  • Preserving the districts and the buildings in them
  • Supporting city, state and national preservation and land use policies, and proposing changes when necessary
  • Preserving and protecting historical, architectural and environmental resources in other areas of the city, and supporting the residents and property owners who share our mission.

  • Along with government and community advocacy, MDPL has made Miami Beach synonymous with art, culture, and preservation—hardly your typical beach town.

    The annual Art Deco Weekend draws approximately 100,000 to Ocean Drive every January. MDPL exhibits, lectures, historic tours and education have become regular daily, weekly and seasonal events all year long, mainstays of the global draw Miami Beach boasts.

    Our Art Deco Welcome Center attracts around 120,000 annual visitors. It is considered the highest volume generating Visitor Center in greater Miami and the beaches.

    And there’s more!

    The Art Deco Museum opened at the Welcome Center in 2015, highlighting the architecture and history of Miami Beach.  All of this would not be possible without donations and support from the public.
    Annual dues and contributions are the cornerstone of our financial stability. Your membership entitles you to free tours, discounts in the Art Deco store, notification of events and other special privileges.
