The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is the only Museum dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of Florida Jewish heritage, arts and culture. The museum is housed in two adjacent lovingly restored historic buildings, at 301 Washington Avenue on South Beach, that were once synagogues for Miami Beach's first Jewish congregation. The museum's focal point is its core exhibit, "MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida, 1763 to Present" and its temporary history and art exhibits that change periodically. A Collections and Research Center, several films, Timeline Wall of Jewish history, museum Store filled with unique items and Bessie's Bistro complete the experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

Two synagogues have been lovingly restored and turned into terrific museums of the local history and culture. Volunteer docents happily give you an introduction. Clever professional displays of the history of this community, plus some great temporary expos. We had a great time.

Not sure about parking we did not have a car but it looks fairly uncongested in the area. There is a small entry fee.
