This is an amazing small museum if you're interested in graphic design, and especially the art and culture of the 1930s, which is the decade most heavily represented. The curatorial staff here must be excellent--I've only been able to visit twice in 11 years, but both times I was extremely impressed with the organization, visual presentation, and content of the special exhibits. (The two I saw were about the "branding" of Nazi Germany, and the impact of "speed" on modern life, just to give an idea of the kinds of exhibits created here.) The permanent collection fascinates me: paintings, furniture, posters, and everyday household objects illustrate the best of twentieth-century design. Examples include posters by Ludwig Hohlwein and E. McKnight-Kauffer, Art Deco clocks, and early-twentieth-century furniture and fixtures. Paintings include works by Italian Futurists and little-known but talented WPA artists. The Wolfsonian building itself is elegant and gemlike. However, the museum is probably most interesting to a niche audience. Not everyone will be interested to see stoves and posters advertising light bulbs, even if they are done in the fabulous Art Deco style.
