The folks were friendly and the exhibits were interesting enough. I don't think it's the kind of place to go repeatedly, but if you're visiting Miami you should stop in. It's inexpensive and doesn't take a lot of time. At the very least, stop in...More

I've lived in MB for 8 years and have been a couple of times. I went recently. I'm not crazy about art but there are some cool things in it. Maybe a decent spot to take a date.

We visited as it was pouring with rain. For $12 it wasnt expensive, but I wouldn't rush to go back. Three floors of exhibits, but one floor was smaller than our living room. I'm really interested in Art Deco, so to read a few bits...More

I came on a Friday night, as every Friday night from 6-9 PM the Wolfsonian is FREE! It is so much more than an art museum, as in addition to paintings, there are all kinds of random artifacts, including even antique household items, and other...More

We didn't know what to expect. So we set our expectations low. The Wolfsonium pleasantly surprised us. Focus is on Art Deco design and global contributions leading to and contributing to that design movement. Exhibits were well-curated, nicely displayed and generally engaging. One floor focused...More

This gem of a museum features decorative arts with a focus on Art Deco. Just steps from South Beach, it’s a good way to be out of the sun and absorb some of Miami’s culture!
