Drawing South Floridians away from the beach and into a museum has always been a challenge, but the Museum of Art of Fort Lauderdale has it all figured out. Exhibits like "Diana: A Celebration" and "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" have packed the 21,000-plus-square-foot building and helped the MOA become the first museum in South Florida to host more than 1 million visitors since 2003. The high-profile extravaganzas have also brought crowds to see the lesser-known pieces of art housed in the elegant galleries designed by American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. Art's not cheap, though. So if you're paying the $15 adult admission for the big exhibits, might as well stroll through the William Glackens wing, filled with northeastern masterpieces from this American painter. (Sorry, folks, but the museum is closed this summer for remodeling.)
