Whether you already love Art Deco, or just want to get a taste of it, the Wolfsonian is a must-see while in Miami Beach. They have an impressive permanent collection of artifacts ranging from home furnishings to industrial design to graphic art. Traveling exhibitions round out the offering, bringing all sorts of interesting themes and topics. Whatever you pay to go through this gem of a museum is well worthwhile.

I particularly like the cafe and gift shop. Very cool items that you don't find just anywhere, and an excellent collection of books for the more serious student of the era.

A really good collection of art and antiques at the Wolfsonian. The museum is a good size that you can take it easy and still be done in a couple of hours. The cafe & bookshop are beautifully designed and they serve some decent food there also. If in the area this is a must visit.

This is a fascinating museum of decorative arts, propaganda and stuff from grandmother's attic. They have outstanding lectures and presentation and a nice cafe. Well worth a visit.
