Coral Gables Museum reviews
The museum is great, but the walking tour was outstanding. We saw things that one ordinarily could not, and got the story behind things that we would notice but not understand. Well worth it. more »
Great Museum, great walking tour, great price, great location, great people. I learned more than I thought I would. more »
cute museum about history of coral gables and Mr. Merrick. very often different art exhibitions, so at the end you can see history and current art together.
This past Thursday evening, I visited the marvelous Coral Gables Museum in order to attend the opening of its most recent photography exhibit, The Art of Compassion. This incredibly meaningful and human project celebrates women who have traditionally lived in the shadows - formerly incarcerated women who are re-entering society. Curated by photographer and producer Starr Sariego, these powerful photographs provide insight in to the lives of formerly incarcerated women, more than 80% of whom were victims of childhood trauma. I highly recommend seeing this important exhibit and applaud Coral Gables Museum for showcasing it. I wish I had seen several other exhibits that this fine, visionary museum has offered in the past. Next door to Book & Books, a favorite spot for most everyone in Miami, Coral Gables Museum is located in the heart of the City Beautiful on Aragon Avenue. It is a historically designated architectural gem featuring the typical Mediterranean Revival of downtown Coral Gables but with elements of Depression Moderne as well. Coral rock in construction, it served as a police and fire station in the past hence the sculptures depicting Coral Gables firemen on its exterior in addition to decorative artwork. I didn't explore the entire museum complex during this visit, so I plan to return and take a proper guided tour and participate in its downtown walking tours. Lauded for its culturally relevant exhibits and celebration of the civic arts, Coral Gables Museum is a must-see. I've been to its delightful gift shop several times to purchase one-of-a-kind cards and several other eclectic gift items. It's the ideal spot to shop if you need to pick up something for the person who has everything. There's ample parking with a garage across the street as well as metered street parking. If you are as guilty as I am for not visiting this grand museum sooner, head over there today and enjoy a splendid afternoon!
