This lovely architectural gem, an ornate, coral-rock construction, stands as ground zero for the City Beautiful's cultural efforts. The Coral Gables Museum once served as the city's first court, and subsequently held multiple roles before it eventually became a museum. Today, it's complete with a 5,000 square foot plaza that hosts everything from street fairs to canine costume contests. A stone's throw from the Coral Gables Art Cinema, Books & Books and Miracle Mile, its location is ideal, and their range of historical and culturally relevant exhibits are worth an afternoon stroll.
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 optimizes its mission by cultivating effective partnerships, and providing programming that includes exhibitions, collections, educational offerings, lectures, tours, publications and special events.
