The Barnacle Historic State Park 3485 Main Highway. +1 305-442-6866 Built in 1891, offers a glimpse of Old Florida during The Era of the Bay. Situated on the shore of Biscayne Bay, this was the home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove´s most charming and influential pioneers. Today, it is one of the last remnants of the once vast Miami Hammock. Enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs on the spacious porch used as a gathering place or on a bench under a tree for solitude.

Hours of Operation The Barnacle is open 9AM to 5PM with tours at 10, 11:30AM; 1 and 2:30PM Friday through Monday and for groups by reservation Wednesday and Thursday. The park is closed on Tuesdays, New Year´s, Thanksgiving and Christmas days.

Park Fees Admission to the park is $2.00 per person age 6 and over; under 6 are free.

As a general rule, don't venture out too far west, past SW 32nd Avenue as the area can get desolate. The best way to get from the train station is to take the 249 Coconut Grove Circulator or at least come from Coconut Grove station not Douglas Road station.
