Museum History

The premises of the Jewish Museum in Miami Beach consists of two connected buildings of historical value. Both buildings were originally synagogues.

The first building was built in 1936 in the then popular Art Deco style with all the characteristic features of that time - it is decorated with a large dome made of copper, a precious marble slab, rounded arches and shapes. As many as 80 stained glass windows adorn the Jewish Museum of Florida. Now it is entered in the Register of Historic Sites and Heritage.

The second branch, built nearby, was the first synagogue in the metropolis. The building was designed by architect Fraser Rose and was built in 1929. The location on Washington Avenue was chosen because most of the Jewish population of the time was concentrated in southern Miami Beach. At the beginning of the two thousandth building was purchased, and by 2007 it was expanded and restored to the Jewish Museum of Florida . At the main level of which there is now an exhibition gallery of about 200 square meters and is used for special programs and events.
