This museum is split in two buildings with a courtyard between. After visiting both my impression is that it is basically aimed towards schools and education. Its exhibits are a mishmash, photography to machinery, maps to fossils,

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 general exhibition covers all Florida and very informative!

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.

We were very positively surprised. We hadn’t thought that southern Florida had a substantial history but it does, and this museum presents it perfectly. Well worth the $10 entry fee. There are 2 buildings. One is focused on the hurricane from 25 years ago. It’s...More

Don't know. I stayed on Miami beach. This museum is in the center of the city of Miami. But you can use the Trip advisor to locate a hotel nearby.
