Welcome to Miami | Cultural Miami | Guide Services

HistoryMiami

The Museum was founded in 1940 by thirteen private individuals and tells the stories of South Florida and the Caribbean. The museum promotes understanding of the past in order to inform the present and create a better quality of life.

The Historical Museum is one of the largest private, regional history museums in the country, recognized for excellence in programming and management by the Florida Department of State and national museum services organizations.

The Museum has been accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1979. It moved to its present site within the Miami-Dade Cultural Center in 1984.
