  • A nice museum which takes you through the sequence of events that built Miami as a city. Nice to see a different perspective on this legendary city. You can spend a good 1.5 hours here across the two buildings. While the chronological exhibits were great, I must say that I was blown away by the Photo Walk on the 2nd Floor of the second building. The photographer has so brilliantly captured some of the pictures that you will definitely be mesmerized by the quality of the images and their perspective. Overall, a great place to spend a few hours and then go grab lunch!
  • Miami is known worldwide as a “fiesta city”; but although it doesn’t have a lot of museums like other big cities, if you are interested in culture, you can find some good venues/events here as well. One of them if the History Miami Museum, located Downtown, in an area frequented by a lot of people not as fortunate as we all are, but frankly I never had a problem walking there (at least during the day). We found this little gem thanks to a Groupon offer, and went to Miami last month for a day trip just to see the museum. Unfortunately we found it closed, and there was no sign at all at the entrance, nothing indicated on their website, no special message on their answering machine… It was a passer-by that reminded us it was Veteran’s Day: our fault for not having thought of that, but I’m still rating the museum 4 stars instead of 5 because of their lack of proper communication (potential international visitors won’t know that city’s offices are closed for Veteran’s Day). So we took another day trip to Miami this month to go and see the museum. The museum consists in 2 buildings of 2 floors, and you start your visit in the building displaying items belonging to the most recent history of Miami. I understand that in this section they also have special exhibits, but unfortunately there was none not when we visited. I found the second building much more interesting: it goes from the old times and also has more items. The place is small, but I think we stayed in the second building for almost a couple of hours: I loved it! It’s very informative, shows lots of very old pictures, a video, and makes you want to further study Miami’s history. I really enjoyed my visit!
