This museum is so unique and should not be missed! Much better than I thought and it has so many unusual pieces spanning the eras including from b.c. Wow, what a great collection! Trust me...don't be an art snob...it's a mix of art and kitch. Allow enough time cause there is a lot to see. Very relaxed atmosphere and no... More

If you expect a serious educational ethnographic museum about erotism and sex in different cultures and ages, this might not be the place. It felt more like someone's private collection without much context or rigueur, but that happened to feature sexual attributes. The doors to staff rooms where wide open and you could see the mess inside which made the... More

This place is a great place to get a good laugh. The stuff is nothing I found shocking even thought I think some would, but overall it’s a fun way to spend a couple of hours.

Pretty disappointing. Outside of a few pieces that were nothing more than interesting, its basically a 70s penthouse level collection.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I visited this museum. Who knew that there was so much erotic art. Here it's displayed in rooms for Art Deco art, Asian art, African art, etc. There was so much to see that I will definitely have to return. They even have a piece from the film "A Clockwork Orange." I was impressed.

It was a great adventure visiting this museum. I had no idea what to expect. This museum is packed with erotic art, trinkets, sculpture, and a variety of interesting artifacts that you'd rarely see in a museum. There were rooms of Asian art, Art Deco, African Art, and S&M. There was even a piece from the film "A Clockwork Orange."... More

So much ART! From every medium, culture, and time. There is something for everyone at WEAM. No photos allowed in the gallery, backpacks must be left at the front desk.

Reasonably priced, an amazing array of artifacts and artwork from 500 BC to the present. Obviously not for children (or for the immature).

The wife and I toured this upstairs museum on a night out during our vacation in Miami Beach. I enjoyed the contemporary art figures most of all. The art from the centuries old section got sort of redundant to me at times. I think it would be a great idea for a single guy on a date if the right... More
