HURRICANE ANDREW | 25 YEARS LATER

It’s crazy to think that it’s been 25 years since Hurricane Andrew. It was “the big one” that hit Miami and devastated the region. Not an easy time for those that went throught it. I remember waiting in line 4 hours for two bags of ice. On my way home I was offered $300 per bag. It was NOT an easy time. This exhibit will be a window into those moments in time.

Exhibition Opens at 6 p.m. on June, 1. To register for opening reception click here.

On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew made landfall in South Florida and devastated our community. At the time, “The Big One,” as the storm came to be known, was the most destructive hurricane in U.S. history. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the storm, and HistoryMiami Museum will recognize this seminal moment through a major 5,000 sq. ft. exhibition that chronicles the story of the hurricane from its formation to its legacy. Our guest curator is Meteorologist, Bryan Norcross.

The exhibition will explore the topic through eyewitness, first-person storytelling, historical footage, documentary photography, artifacts, and Hurricane Andrew-inspired art work, with the goal of connecting visitors to the emotion of the moment. The Museum will also offer educational programs for the general public and school audiences. Altogether, the exhibition and programming will engage visitors not only in learning about the storm’s impact on Miami, but also in remembering and commemorating this milestone in our community’s history.
