Barnacle State Historic Park preserves the oldest building in the county. It costs only $2 to enter and $3 for a tour of the inside of the house. It was an interesting tour. The interior view of the upstairs area was the most interesting portion of the tour.
The barnacle house tour was interesting. The best part of this tiny, and I do mean tiny, park is the walk to the pay station. After that it is a long lawn in front of the house. If you want to pay $2.00 just to get away from the bustle and set in a quiter setting than it's fine.

Somewhat interesting but much better when there is an outdoor concert or other event going on. No need to go out of your way to see this unless you have some extra time to kill and you are already in Coconut Grove.
