Little Havana’s first Museum opening in Winter 2017

Wed 15 Nov, 2017

Little Havana’s first museum -El Museo de Little Havana-  is expected to open on Calle Ocho this winter. Admission will be free. Located next to the popular Ball and Chain bar, El Museo will be a permanent time capsule on the calle, preserving tales and artifacts of the three-square-mile neighborhood, which is home to not only Cuban exiles but also immigrants from Central and South America.

The Barlington Group and HistoryMiami started with a fundraising, looking to raise $150,000 with an online campaign that helped with the construction of the space. It is not meant to be a ‘Cuban’ museum,  rather, the museum will explore what was essentially Miami’s first suburb throughout the ages and provide some context for its current revival, which is being led by many Cuban-American entrepreneurs.
