This museum is very entertaining and interesting. There were all genres of erotic art from all different generations and cultures. Everyone in the museum is a bit uncomfortable, so there are many funny moments you can have with the other visitors. Catherine the Great's chair was one of my highlights and the Disney paintings when you first walk in. The... More

Let me first say that we spent about an hour here, so that suggests that there are a number of artifacts / pieces to look at. Now let me add that all the pieces are owned by one woman. Amazing! Its a good way to spend an hour or so and have a chuckle (or reflection) or two on how... More

We went there as part of a community bus trip. The owner, Naomi Wilzig greeted us and spoke to us about how she began the museum. She answered many questions we had and was available to answer questions as we walked through the museum. The subject matter is fascinating, especially since most of the art is hundreds of years old.... More

After visiting WEAM twice in two years I have officially decided that it is my favorite place in South Beach. They present this topic as it should be, as fine art. Very, very interesting fine art. There were certain pieces that we looked forward to seeing again for an entire year, and we are very glad that we went back... More

I decided to perv out at the erotic art museum. Truly stuff from around the world. Most of it came off though as tired porn, very dusty tired porn. Haven't these people ever heard of Swiffer Dusters? There was a loop video of the lady that collected all this. Watching this nicely dressed, well spoken, older lady discuss the finer... More

I've been to the WEAM four or five times now. It is a "must see" for any grown up who visits south beach (unless you are a prude or have sexual hang ups). This collection has art from ancient times, French Romantic, Asian, Indian, Classic pin-ups, homoerotic art, contemporary hetero...you name it she's got it!

Although the charge is $15/person I would definitely visit this museum again. I visited the museum as part of my girlfriends bachelorette weekend so this was definitely a fitting place to be! The collection of items present was very impressive, as was the 6 or 7ft wood carved penis and bed. This would definitely be a fun place to visit... More

We visited this spot, just a few minutes walk from our hotel. The admission is a bit pricey, $15.00 per adult ticket. It is an extensive collection with something fun for most anyone. We went with three couples. My husband said the constant running video with the nice Jewish grandmother, the museum's primary collect, turned him off a bit. The... More
