If you like history and learning alittle about the cities you visit then this is a must. The house is only open Wednesday & Sundays, tours are 1:00- 4:00 PM promptly on the hour. Seniors, military, and students are $3, everyone else, $5, which covered the tour of the home. The tours are given by volunteers, ours was Juan and he was excellent. The tour was layed back and unhurried, plenty of time for stories of Coral Gables history, questions were received and answered with true interest. After the tour we were able to walk about the gardens and through the groto on our own- again no one hurried you through, which is great for me as I love picking up new gardening ideas to attempt at home. Beautiful home, hugely informative and friendly tour, this is a definate "gotta do"!

I really enjoyed my tour of the Merrick house. The hours are very limited, but it is worth a visit. The house is small so it does not take long to see, but it is an interesting part of the history of the area.

It is only a block away from the venetian pools, so it is easy to stop at the Merrick House on the way there.
