Nice place to visit. A little small but very interesting, specially the history about how Miami was populated along the time and the fights for domain of the lands and isles by different crowns Spain, Protugal, Great Britain, France... among others. The facilities well conditioned.

Be sure to visit this place with children. They need to know the history of the Miami city, the beautiful place where they live. Many patterns of events become clear. Don't forget your student ID card to receive a discount at the entrance and there are also discounts for customers of the bank of America

Very helpful staff, both on the phone and at main desk. Parking IS difficult in area for a large truck with handicap chair hoist on rear. Despite parking being validated by museum we got charged full amount. The Hurricane Andrew exhibit is very good and a great reminder for citizens in hurricane-prone areas to pay close attention! I loved the People Of Miami photographic exhibit too, and the artifacts from native peoples of The Americas. The history of Florida settlement was a bit hard to follow, it seems to jump from ancient native settlements to the Spanish Armada arrival to the Henry Flagler Era, to Cuban Migration...the timeline just seemed haphazard to us. All said and done it is a beautiful facility and we had a nice time.

Great and fun place for the entire family. Full of history. Allow 2 hours if you want to enjoy it with time and read and watch everything. A lot of history and very nice staff. Parking is $5 with validation on the museum. Accessible for wheel chairs.

Take a walk with HistoryMiami Museum’s Resident Historian, Dr. Paul George, through one of our city’s most exciting and attractive neighborhoods, South Beach’s Art Deco District. You will hear the stories of how this area, once strictly farmland, was transformed by the land boom of the 1920’s and again by the hurricane of 1926. Learn how the architectural revolution of the 1930’s defined this neighborhood as a lively vacation destination, only to be turned in to a retirement community in the 1950’s and 60’s, and back into the major entertainment destination that we see today.
