Whenever I am in Miami Beach I make a point of seeing what the current exhibition is. This visit it was "Promising Paradise, Cuban Allure, American Seduction" . One of the things I especially like about shows at the Wolf is that their exhibitions always make an effort to explain the context of the materials. In the case of the... More

This museum has a breath of artifacts and art work that keep your attention as you easily wander from section to section. The floors are not too long and the crowd is not too big. You can actually enjoy the art and be surprised by what you find. It does not take very much time to get your art fix... More

The Wolfsonian has an amazing collection of Art Deco material and puts on terrific exhibitions. The current one on Cuba from 1919 to 1959 is brilliantly laid out. One can spend hours or a good grip on it in about 30 minutes. The building is an attraction in of itself. The gift store is well merchandized and a perfect place... More

3 floors to explore along with a gift shop and coffee bar. Bring a camera and be prepared to see an excellent museum.

We truly enjoyed The Wolfsonian, the gift shop and café. The museum was a lot of fun to visit. A lot of history, and things I would never see any where else.

Interesting decor, wish the artifacts had been more interesting instead of like samples for a discussion. They did a good job on the art deco exhibit.

We were lucky enough to turn up after 6pm on a Friday when it happened to be free. Worth a visit, good variety of displays. Not sure if we would have gone in if we'd had to pay, but can't complain for something that's free!

Visited here with Mum during our recent stay in Miami after our cruise. Working at a university museum myself, I was keen to visit. Half price entry for pensioners which my Mum was pleased about! They didn't offer this though (perhaps didn't want to offend my Mum!) but we went back after realising from the leaflet there was an OAP... More
