This museum gives a concise and interesting picture of the history of Miami, from prehistoric time to modern development. We spent a couple of hours working our way through the history and the centuries. We enjoyed the sections on piracy, the Spanish American War, the building of the railroad, and modern day. A museum staffer whose father came from Cuba on an innertube boat added a note of immediacy to the immigrant story. Seeing this museum early in your visit to the area will make the rest of the time here more interesting. The museum is located next to the main library, which is also a nice place to visit if you're a curious type.
