  • We walked around and ended up at this museum. Two buildings and lots to see. I enjoyed a special exhibition of Miami Beach photo and the second building's general exhibition. The second building's gen...  more »
  • We liked this museum. Friendly staff and the chronology of the history of Miami is well thought out. A lot to see and a lot of history. We could also visit two very interesting temporary exhibition. One history of Hurricane ANDREW before and after. Incredible... There was a room or we could felt the powerful of the wind has the Interior of a House. The other photo exhibition.. .very well also. Easy parking, but we did not like the Museum environment, but it's at the Museum that we spent our time.

  • This is a veritable encyclopedia of the area, tracing the timeline from the indigenous population to contemporary benefactors who laid the foundation for the city. A must-see for the curious.  more »

  • 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.
  • Excellent. Full of Miami History. Well worth the time.
  • To me it is the best museum in Miami. Very well deisgned. The exhibitions are great !

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
