This museum has all kinds of activity for the neighborhood. Live jazz concerts, family activities, regular exhibits in a expansive rooms, regular speakers on local and national subject matter. There is a small, but filled gift shop. Get to know Coral Gables better by visiting this historic building. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful in every kind of way... More

The museum staff cares a great deal about the collection and it is evident in how the exhibits are presented and the museum is cared for. The exhibits profile the city's development and history with great detail. Nicely presented. The city tours could stand improvement though. The museum's director conducted our tour and she didn't know or misused architectural terms.... More

The building is a beautiful very interesting example of old coral Gables architecture. The gift shop is very cute. I have found the exhibits very uneven, not so good to very nice.

Being I grew up in South Florida, I had a little knowledge of the history of Miami and I had been to Coral Gables many times as I went to the University of Miami there. I heard of Flagler and all he did but had no idea about the Merrick family and their influence on the development or actually establishment... More

I do not believe it should be categorized as a museum. It has little to offer. Few information and pieces. However you still can enjoy a 20 minutes tour there (tickets cost 7$ while I believe it should be free). I still recommend it if you are already in the area but not to get out of your way to...

Most other similarly sized museums are superior to this one. Not particularly engaging, and not worth the admission. Go next door to Books & Books for a meal in their courtyard, and a browsing experience (or vice versa), instead.

The architecture is historical, I really like it. You can find the history of Coral Gables. Current exhibits: "Capture Coral Gables 2016" and "This land is your land: A second Century for American National Parks".
