The Museum features a 5000 square foot public plaza at the corner of Salzedo and Giralda Avenues, in front of the new Robert and Marian Fewell Wing.
The Mediterranean Revival or “Old Spanish” architecture prominent in the Gables was chosen by the City’s developer, George Merrick, because of the features that allow for an exchange of air and light. Courtyards, patios, plazas and loggias are common elements of classic Coral Gables home and building design.
In keeping with this architectural design tradition, the Coral Gables Museum features an inviting courtyard off of the main lobby, a 5000 square foot public plaza on the northwest corner of the complex and a beautiful entry loggia as part of the new Robert and Marian Fewell Wing.
The Museum Courtyard welcomes visitors to relax outdoors while visiting the Museum complex.
