I didn’t know about this museum even though I have lived in Florida most of my life. I really enjoyed it. I loved learning about the start of Miami. I found it so interesting. I also enjoyed the on the Jewish on Miami Beach. I definitely would recommend this museum to others & will be back to see other exhibits. See More

I grew up in Opa-locka from 1954 to 1972, then served in the US Army from 1972 to 1996. All the time away, I dreamed of returning to our Miami, and our beautiful ocean. We enjoy visiting our #history...miamimuseum to learn about all we missed along the way. It makes us love our South Florida even more. See More

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit HistoryMiami museum yesterday. We specifically were interested in the Hurricane Andrew exhibit. My son is a weather and history buff who wasn't even alive whe...n Andrew struck. The memorabilia, the interviews, the television clips, newspapers, and even letters sent to Bryan Norcross create fantastic exhibit for those who remember and those who have only heard about the devastation and recovery. The rest of the museum is devoted to Miami, Florida, and US history. I learned more today about Florida than I have since I moved here in 1983. The section with the pictures of 'ordinary' people was fascinating. I wish I had time to read the story of each and every one. I will need another day (soon!) to come back and visit again as there was a lot to take in for one visit. Staff at both buildings was very friendly and even recommended a nearby restaurant for our lunch. See More

I went yesterday to the HistoryMiami museum with my husband and brother in law to see the Hurricane Andrew exhibit. One staff member overheard me telling them that my parents had only been in Miami fo...r about 5 years when Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida. He asked if my parents would be interested in attending the exhibit for free. However, my dad suffers from depression and due to the emotional nature of the exhibit, I told him that he probably wouldn't be able to attend. He did however, give me 2 complimentary tickets for my sister and brother (who unfortunately had his 9th birthday during Hurricane Andrew). Very caring staff. Wonderful exhibit. I would definitely recommend this museum. Especially while the Hurricane Andrew exhibit is still being presented. See More

This is the most enjoyable museum I have visited on any topic. The topics cover pre-human archaeology through contemporary issues and traverse science, culture, transportation, media, weather and more.... Many exhibits are interactive inviting you to write your thoughts on the wall or step into a trolley car. The staff are the friendliest and most helpful. I'm glad I found out about this place and it deserves to be as popular as PAMM/Frost Science. Give it a visit then spread the word! See More

The Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA) recently held an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew (and our association) at this beautiful venue. I highly rec...ommend it. The exhibit was fantastic and the venue, itself, was a beautiful setting for our event. Thanks very much to Stephanie O'Barr the event coordinator for HistoryMiami Museum. She was great! See More

I went specifically to view the Hurricane Andrew exhibit since I was one of the people interviewed. They did a terrific job on the whole exhibit. They even had a room to simulate what it would've been... like if you were at home during the storm. See More

Attending a FAPIA event at the museum for the 25th anniversery of Hurricaine Andrew, my son who is a Public Adjuster and only 24 years old he was very somber to see such destruction. He was able to what we lived thru and what the museum displayed, that it gave him a clear picture that we Floridian
came together to help each other.

We went to see the Alfred Browning Parker exhibit and were very pleased. Excellent collection of a true Miami visionary. His words ring true today. We also enjoyed the Miami Sports exhibit. Stumble...d into the collection of the Whitman brothers of Miami Beach and we were blown away. Absolutely fascinating the story of these brothers and their many achievements. Watermen to be sure and an incredible story of old Miami and the waters off of Miami Beach. See More

It was beautiful, a lot of history! However, the staff were rude and they kicked us out 14 minutes before the closing time. At the registration to oak the tickets, the machine wasn't working, there... was a line and only one person working while 10 extra just walked around doing nothing! See More

Really enjoyed the exhibit, appreciated how they curated and presented video footage to create an immersive experience. Having been in our home in Country Walk for Andrew, studied carefully some artif...acts that had been saved for 25 years by weather scientists like the pressure analysis map of the storm track and the wind speed recording from the Hurricane Center Coral Gables before the antenna and sensors were blown off the roof!

Wonderful experience! They had tons of cool stuff on display and we loved learning about the history of Miami. It wasn't stuffy or boring and the staff was kind and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit.
