Miami History Museum

Yesterday, me and my class went to the Miami History Museum by metromover from the school. In the museum we had a Tourist Guide expert in History who talked to us about prehistory. We saw bones, teeth, a turtle fossil, pictures of prehistoric animals and indians.

Then, she talked about the arrival for the Spanish people to Florida and how they worked on the land, and built strong castles for war. But they didn't do it by themselves, they brought slaves from Africa to do all the hard work.

Also the guide told us the story about the cowboys, their lifestyle in their homestead on the forest many years ago. The things they did to survive.

And at the end of the visit, we entered to the Aviation Exposition, where we could see pictures of old airports and planes, real simulators, sits, clothes for pilots and flight attendants, that all these things belong to PanAm Airlines.

The most important thing I learned during the visit is how important it is for Florida to receive inmigrants from many countries who contribute to the development and growth of the State.
