Support HistoryMiami Museum
Through 83 years of thoughtful stewardship over our collective history, HistoryMiami has always kept an eye on the future. And the one we see before us is bright, bold and dynamic – and depends in part on you.
We’ve ushered in an exciting new era of museum leadership with our recently appointed CEO and executive director, Natalia Crujeiras – a history maker in her own right by being the very first woman to helm HMM in its eight decades – and we’re developing plans to significantly widen our reach in the community, centered around expanded exhibitions, innovative programs and a brand-new world-class facility, one that will serve not just as the place that holds Miami’s history, but as a bastion of community engagement, outreach and unity
Please join us in making these plans a reality by supporting our efforts. Your tax-deductible gift will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve directly contributed to a better future for Miami and all the people who call it home. Together, let’s make history.Donate
“Miami deserves a world-class historical institution that’s future-ready and reflects the dynamic and ever-changing nature of this multifaceted and complex city, a city that has earned a rightful place in the national discourse on the American experience.”
They’re one of the few institutions to still hold public trust – ranked second only to family and friends and well above the government, corporations, and the media. That’s an immense responsibility, and confirmation that our mission is more important now than ever as our country becomes increasingly divided. It makes the work we do more significant, today and in the future.
We’re looking toward that future as HistoryMIami Museum prepares to join our fellow stakeholders and County leaders in planning and developing a new type of neighborhood with a vibrant cultural center, one that will include a state-of-the-art facility that our museum will call home.
Miami deserves a world-class historical institution that’s future-ready and reflects the dynamic and ever-changing nature of this multifaceted and complex city, a city that has earned a rightful place in the national discourse on the American experience. A place centered and built around community and inclusion, where we can continue to share our complicated history as we foster stronger and more engaged connections to one another. Where HistoryMiami Museum – your museum – can offer historical context to better understand our present and inspire the building of a better Miami, for everyone.
We’re reimagining our already community-centered work so that every visitor to the museum can shape their own experience, just as we all can and do shape Miami. Acknowledging the trust the community has in us, our purpose is to educate, encourage empathy and honor our differences. Our dream is to become the premier cultural amenity for the understanding and celebration of Miami.
With so much work and many months of planning ahead, the success of our Annual Fund will play a critical role in supporting what’s on the horizon. I hope you will consider making a contribution to our collective future.
Miami, let’s make history together.
Natalia Crujeiras, CEO and Executive Director
