Miami Springs Historical Society and Museum

Since 1987 the Miami Springs Historical Society and Museum has strived to capture the unique history of the town, while documenting a community in transition.  These efforts are intended to give insight from the past while providing a context for the changing present and future.  The educational experiences we provide reach beyond the walls of the museum.  Below are some of the learning opportunities that we have provided to our community.
