MIAMI– In the midst of the start of another Hurricane Season in South Florida, HistoryMiami announces the Hurricane Andrew exhibition will be arriving to the Museum in August 2017.
In gearing up for this exhibition, the museum will be hosting a collection initiative this coming August. The Museum asks for the entire Miami community to participate and bring in any items or photos they have from Hurricane Andrew.
As the most destructive hurricane at the time to hit South Florida, Hurricane Andrew is a pivotal point in hurricane history and caused a huge change within the city of Miami. The exhibition will have a variety of items on display, in which guests will be able to learn about the history of the hurricane and remember Hurricane Andrew’s impact on the Miami community.
“HistoryMiami feels that this exhibition is about remembering Hurricane Andrew and its impact but also about remembering the courage and strength of the people of Miami.”
