HistoryMiami is the premier cultural institution committed to gathering, organizing, preserving and celebrating Miami’s history as the unique crossroads of the Americas. We accomplish this through exhibitions, city tours, education, research, collections and publications.
HistoryMiami, a non-profit museum and Smithsonian Affiliate, houses more than one million historical images, including Miami Herald and Miami News collections and 30 years of ethnographic documentation of the region’s cultural heritage.
The Museum's new Center for Photography collects images from photographers and the general public, captures photographs through its own documentation projects, offers exhibitions and photography programs, and more. With these activities, the Center captures, safeguards and shares the images that illuminate the Miami experience.
