It is important to learn about our city's history. Knowing our past can provide us with a greater understanding of the present and future.

The Museum will be free and open to the public on May 1st for all community members to attend and learn about our city’s history. Tours of the permanent exhibition Tropical Dreams will be available at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

Did you know that the history of South Florida began more than 10,000 years ago? It started with the arrival of prehistoric Indians and continues to the multicultural metropolis of today. Throughout the ages, the story has been characterized by arrivals–the immigration of people from many different places and cultures into the region. These varied peoples brought their dreams with them and remade South Florida over and over again to fulfill those dreams. They also adapted to the region’s subtropical environment, interacted with other cultures in South Florida, and, in the process, changed into something new and unusual. This is their story and we want to share it with you.

No reservation or RSVP required, you can just show up.
