Castle
“Fans of the mystical will love the Coral Castle Museum, which houses a sculpture garden made entirely of coral rock. The park's oddities begin with its creator, Ed Leedskalnin, who constructed the whole garden from 1923 to 1951 in secrecy. Part of the museum's fun comes from puzzling how one man could have secretly moved and carved more than 1,100 tons of rock. Another excellent question for the Coral Castle Museum's visitors: why? Most recent travelers were delighted by the Coral Castle Museum's classic roadside attraction charm, though others felt it entrance was too pricey. Some praise the museum's tour guides, who weave Ed Leedskalnin's complex story into the information regarding each of the unique sculptures. Just don't expect to leave with any definitive answers. The cost of admission ranges: $18 for adults ages 13 to 64, $15 for seniors ages 65 and older, $8 for children age 7 to 12 and free for kids 6 and younger. The Coral Castle Museum opens at 9 a.m. daily and closes at 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The museum welcomes visitors from its position roughly 30 miles south of Miami, between the cities of Homestead and Leisure City. Check the Coral Castle Museum website if you want to learn more about this genuinely wacky Florida attraction.”
