Formerly called the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, the museum now has a new name. The museum's permanent exhibit Tropical Dreams: A People's History of South Florida explores South Florida history from prehistoric times to the present. They also have several temporary exhibitions going on at any time, focusing on the history, cultures, folklife and archaeology of South Florida and the Caribbean.
