“Cool Gift Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

I stopped in for the gift shop and was not disappointed. They had a wide array of books and gifts for men, women, and kids. I wish I had time to tour the museum.

“Tons of variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

I visited the Wolfsonian on a Friday evening which is a time that allows for free visitation. I've been to several art museums in the MIami area and this is the one that truly caught my eye. I definitely recommend taking advantage of their free hours which are Friday evenings from 6p-9p. It has a lot of attractions so I would highly recommend getting there closer to 6p because it could easily take you 3 hours to wander through. Nice layout!

Very interesting collection of the design items of the 19th-20th centuries.
6th floor contains collection of posters mostly against AIDS, but also against othe STD. Good presentation of the poster art of the 20th century.
