The Coral Gables Museum: A Great Community Asset

For those of us who missed the grand opening there is a wealth of information, videos and photos on the Coral Gables Museum website.  The museum is led by a highly experienced and professional manager, supported by a private foundation and provides great spaces for meetings and regular museum activities.  This is a huge asset for the city given its quality and location.

The Museum’s mission is to celebrate, investigate and explore all aspects of architecture, landscape architecture, design and urban planning as well as historic and environmental preservation, set within the context of one of America’s first and most successful planned communities – the City of Coral Gables.

The Museum is a true public/private partnership between the City of Coral Gables and the Coral Gables Museum Corp., a private, not for profit 501.c.3 corporation operating an educational cultural institution within a City owned facility.  The Museum raises its own operating budget to fund the exhibitions and educational programs it provides, through memberships, private and government grants, admissions, earned income and, most importantly, with contributions from community members who believe in our mission.
