We went this past weekend on a "family fun day", and admission was waived. I recall many of the exhibits from my childhood when they were located at the Museum of Science. Sometime in the late 70's the collection was placed in its own museum, rightfully so. However, it doesn't seem like the museum has been updated since then. There is a special section for the "Miami Circle", which is relatively recent, but the display seems dated and flimsy. Most exhibits are in dire need of a facelift, bringing into the 21st century. The actual history of Miami probably comprises about 50% of the museum, the rest is about other places around Florida. As it is, the museum is mostly geared to children. If you have children, they might get a kick out of it, otherwise, do not expect to be thrilled by Miami's history.
