  • The only museum dedicated to the civic arts in S. Florida! Exhibits change a few times a year. Currently they are exhibiting Cuban art from Colonial to Contemporary. Along with Cuban architecture in Cuba and around the world. Monthly live Jazz, events are always free or reduced for members of the museum. As a member I feel that I am doing my part to help educate and enlighten residents and visitors alike.
  • Small and quaint with good local history.
  • Excellent museum with a very nice staff.
  • Museum tells great story! Well organized with awesome information
  • An amazing little museum of Coral Gables right in the heart of the city. This is a great choice of a historic museum to visit if you're in Miami. It gives you an indepth look at how our city once looked before man started expanding westward and the populations began to rapidly increase. You will learn about the founder of Coral Gables, George Merrick who went nearly broke to create and build one of America's most wealthiest cities in the nation. The whole museum should take anywhere between 2-3 hours. It isn't so big, but there is a lot to see in the amount of space they have. So take your time and I hope you get to get an idea of what Miami once started out as. FYI: The building the houses the Coral Gables Museum was a WPA project during the Great Depression that once served as the home of the police and fire departments from 1939 through 1975. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
