The building looks Medterainian, it was a police station that has been purposed for a museum, and looks beautiful. The exhibit: "Cyclists Matter". I also want to see, "Surrounding Landscapes". Cost $7.

Set in a beautiful building on Aragon Avenue, this former police station and jail has been transformed to a spot of fun and learning. the Executive Director met me and gave me a mini tour and I loved what I saw. This is a real treasure for Coral Gables and I highly encourage locals and tourists alike to spend some... More

We enjoyed the museum very much. The exhibit "Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow was very informative. I had never seen a KKK outfit so close up. Unfortunately that exhibits leaves soon. The two docents we had were very informative about the origins of Coral Gables. It is a very inexpensive museum. They are not reciprocal with other museum memberships. The... More

The standard commentary on the founding of Coral Gables by the Merrick family is 'ok', and comes across as more of propaganda than anything - I highly doubt the settling of the city with 'volunteer' labour was 'rosy'... However, the temporary exhibition on Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges was stunning. I had never blended... More

If you are interested in the early years of Coral Gables you can learn much about it at this museum. They also have various specialty exhibits of art.

We went with a friend and her kids on a day that they were no charging the entrance...thank you for that. It was a disappointing since it is very small and there is nothing really interesting to see other than the old building (very well maintained).

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
