How did the Cuban American Museum in Miami get built?

The museum was made possible by the citizens of Miami-Dade County's 2004 Building Better Communities bond program, as well as the generous support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, as well as the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. The museum opened its doors to the public on February 24, 2007.

The building is part of a larger project called El Centro de la Raza (the Center for Diversity) that includes two other buildings: a library and community center that opened in 2013 and an art gallery that is scheduled to open in 2016.

The museum has more than 100,000 square feet of exhibition space, including a theater, classrooms, and offices. It is home to one of the largest collections of Latin American art in the United States.

The building is located at 1777 NW 27th Avenue in Doral. It can be reached by taking the Orange Line to the Doral Miamarail Station or the Blue Line to the Doral Metrorail Station.

The opening hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A tour of the museum is available daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.

Where is the Junior Museum of Miami located?

In 2017, the museum relocated from Coconut Grove to Museum Park in downtown Miami, near to the Perez Art Museum Miami. In 1949, the Junior League of Miami established the Junior Museum of Miami. It was housed on the junction of Biscayne Boulevard and 26th Street. In 1990, it moved to its current location on the fourth floor of the James L. Watson Research Center at the University of Miami.

The museum features interactive exhibits and programs for children aged 3-12 years old. It also offers workshops and classes that teach creativity, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills to students from kindergarten through high school.

There are several different tours you can take of the museum. The self-guided tour allows visitors to explore the permanent collection at their own pace by reading captions and viewing artwork. The junior docent program recruits young people to be guides for older visitors. Participants must be 13 years old or older and have an interest in art history and science. They are trained on site for two weeks then assigned to a group of three visitors. The training includes topics such as how to use digital cameras, record players, and computers as tools for discovery.

The museum has received numerous awards including being named one of "America's Best Workplaces" by Forbes magazine. In addition, UMiami has been ranked No. 1 in college towns by Forbes for supporting a thriving arts community.
