What a fabulous collection to stumble upon! One room after another filled with incredible pieces arranged in a time line showig the history of glass and ceramics, most of which is explained along the way while viewing the pieces. All this is in/ and from a gallery that supports continuing creation of contemporary pieces in a workshop and studio in Africa! This may be the only place to see such works all together. Also, I cant say enough about the gift shop filled with wonderfu treasures!

WMODA is an extensive collection of decorative ceramic and glass art from the 18th Century through the present with some really excellent examples from Victorian, Edwardian, arts & crafts, art nouveau, and contemporary artists. All of it high quality examples. Admission was $12 per person. We were there for a couple hours at least.

I needed a birthday gift for my best friend… found the Weiner museum online and called to get a gift certificate for a birthday gift. Went along when my friend used his gift. He called me 3 times afterwards to thank me for the awesome gift. I can not recommend the place highly enough. The staff are incredibly friendly. This is the best kept secret in Broward County! I will be going back and I will be giving lots more gift certificates. It is an amazing and wonderfully pleasant way to spend an afternoon and admission is very inexpensive (underpriced for what you get in my opinion.) a 10 out of 10 rating from me!

This is an amazing collection of ceramic and glass pieces of art. There are several rooms filled with beautiful things to look at. It can take up to an hour and a half to see it all thoroughly. Not recommended for children because many items are not protected by glass. Exhibits are on the second floor and there is an elevator. Wheelchair accessible. $12.00 entrance fee is actually worth it because of how beautiful and large this collection is.

I've always driven by this building and assumed it was private, but had always been intrigued. Needing something cool and socially distant to do during the summer days with 2 teens and COVID, we wandered over early one morning and boy were we pleasantly surprised! There was a mini scavenger hunt that immediately engaged the younger ones and I was able to meander quietly through worlds of creative pottery and glasswork. I learned a lot, I admired more and we finished in about 1-1/2 hours. I'd love to bring others soon, or just come back on my own. By the way,the staff was helpful, welcoming and very friendly.

This is, indeed, an amazing museum. I've been to the great museums of the world and this one spoke to me. If you love objets d'art, I cannot think of a singular collection or museum exhibit that comes close to the WMODA. It may be true that when many people hear Wedgwood or Royal Doulton or Lladro , they think of their grandmother's curio cabinet. This is anything but. Not only are there collections of above fired arts and glass, but the depth and breadth of the collections and the story they tell is masterfully curated. As I soaked up the artistry and beauty within, I could not help but realize I was seeing a once in a lifetime melding of one man's passion (obsession?) , combined with one curator's genius ability to present his passion in a way that both honors his preservation of these objets and tells the stories of some of the great artisans and artistic communities of recent centuries. The icing on the cake is that the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries objets at the core of the collection bridge to a thoroughly modern and global artist community that at the same time honors the history and artistry of the core collection, yet bridges the past and present, across continents and cultures, and presents the future of the fired arts and glass . You must go.

You would never pass this building, a fossil of a dinosaur right on the cascade of the building facing Federal Highway, Curiosity should be the first question about how it got up there but moreover, what’s inside this white, w-story building? A little of everything which will not fill you with boredom but of neat little and intricate and artistic things that one may have thought one has seen before but rarely up close. That explains the fossil on the building, the personal look at everything large and small. There is shop which has neat and practicable (and some not) things but it is nice museum / gallery to spend one’s afternoon.

Visit the museum of decorative arts, it is a ceramics and glass museum carrying Lalique and Wedgwood, absolutely amazing collections, the exhibits change often so make sure you go often and for the events as every time there is something new and something you've missed. Shop for unique handmade gifts here, they are well curated. The staff is welcoming, warm and knowledgeable. Love this place!

My husband and I visited the Wiener Museum of Decorative Art today. We were both so impressed that I am writing a review right away. The collection is extensive and well - arranged. The are two parts : one devoted to Modern Art and the other devoted to the 18th century up until mid 20th century. We enjoyed both parts and so did other people. One woman told me that she had visited this museum at least a dozen times and the collection was constantly evolving. This museum is a hidden gem!

Even though friends told me about the museum, I wasn’t prepared for the unbelievable experience I was expecting old fussy China and porcelain. It wasn’t that at all. I can imagine coming back a number of times because your eye will always catch something different
