After years of planning & restoration, the new Coral Gables Museum finally opened up last month! We are thrilled to have this wonderful museum in our neighborhood and are so excited that it has finally opened. The museum’s mission is “to celebrate, investigate and explore the civic arts of architecture and urban and environmental design, including fostering an appreciation for the history, vision, and cultural landscape of Coral Gables; promoting beauty and planning as well as historic and environmental preservation for a broad audience, including children, families, and community members, as well as local, regional, national and international visitors.”
The museum is located in the historic site of the 1939 Police and Fire Station. It currently has 5 exhibits on display including an Arva Moore Parks exhibit on George Merrick, a John A. Stuart display on Art & Architecture during the New Deal, a display on Juan Ponce de Leon’s “La Florida”, a Caroline Parker-Santiago exhibit called “Coral Gables Sister Cities: Partners in Peace” and the Anthony R. Abraham Family Gallery Inaugural Exhibit from curators Norma Jean, Thomas & Brian Abraham.

Tues – Thurs 12:00 – 6:00
Friday 12:00 – 8:00
