When we went there was a mini-golf course set up and it was run down and broken--not at all fun to play. The rest of the museum was dedicated to the history of the area and all I learned was that I really didn't care about the history of the area that much.

This is an adorable little museum in the heart of Coral Gables. Despite living around the corner it took me over a year to get here (tickets via a deal site- but regular price is about $7 pp). When I visited they had some art installations that were not permanent and were not overly impressive but the real gem in... More

A small museum but very much part of the community with events outside on the plaza every week and changing exhibitions and concerts inside

This museum while small compared to others around town , has a quaint and uniqueness of it's own. Always finding interesting and innovative ways to get the local community involved. After all isn't that what museums are suppose to do? From Parcor adventurist jumping off walls to more subdue lessons of Rums from different countries. It really is very informative... More

This is a great museum in a historic building right in downtown Coral Gables. While the museum is a bit light on physical objects/actual artifacts the exhibits are still very engaging and informative. Imaginative use of space and some very creative presentation. We really enjoyed our visit. Do take a moment to explore the spectacular reliefs on the building's exterior... More

A warm welcome awaits you in this charming, medium-sized museum in the historic South Florida town of Coral Gables. Each room contains large photographs, books , plans, contemporary advertisements of one family's dream to create an ideal Spanish-themed town in the early 20th century. A fine story and a fine museum. We also took one of the Saturday morning historic... More

Here is a sweet little museum if you are in the area. There is one exhibit about the local history as well as rotating exhibits. We were there during a Philip Johnson Glass House exhibit (not sure why as the home is in CT). We went during a Friday event night, paid a small admission fee and there was a... More

There is not much of interest at this "museum". The history of Coral Gables is some what interesting to locals but limited. The other exhibits; local photo contest, mini-golf and sister cities exhibit are not particularly appealing. If it was free I wouldn't be so critical. The building itself is beautiful. The gift shop had some nice things.

If you like to gain "a sense of place," and love to have an historical context when you are visiting a new community, it is nice to find a museum to help you understand your surroundings and the Coral Gables Museum does a wonderful job. We had a guided tour, with a Road Scholar group and were welcomed and toured... More
