Miami International Map Fair
This annual event showcases antique maps, rare books, panoramas and atlases from around the world. Peruse and purchase antique maps from some of the finest map dealers in the world. Learn about cartography through a series of lectures by experts in the field and enjoy special events held throughout the weekend.
In 2013, the Miami International Map Fair is pleased to be part of Viva Florida 500, a statewide initiative to commemorate a significant milestone in our state's history - the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Juan Ponce de Leὀn to La Florida in 1513. Select lectures offered during Map Fair weekend will explore Florida's rich history and diverse cultural heritage.
The Fitzgerald & Kanner Trust for Historic Maps
The Fitzgerald & Kanner Trust for Historic Maps was established to endow the Miami International Map Fair, to support the growth of HistoryMiami's map collection, and to foster an appreciation of historic maps through exhibitions, publications and educational programming. In 1990 an anonymous donor established the Joseph H. Fitzgerald Trust for Historic Maps as a part of the museum's endowment. The Trust is named after Joseph H. Fitzgerald in honor of his long service to HistoryMiami and avid interest in maps. The Trust has grown through donations of generous friends and map enthusiasts.
