What a fun evening! Took advantage of the free Friday evening (6-9pm). This included a guided tour of the permanent exhibit by Shoshanna, one of curators, who was informative without being preachy. A great evening!

This collection of art and objects was truly delightful. We especially enjoyed the presentation of the poster art of Julius Klinger who lived mostly in Vienna and Berlin prior to WWII.

Small museum conveniently located in Miami Beach's Art Deco district. Beautiful building with good collection of furniture and appliances from early 1900's. The Julius Klinger exhibit with advertising graphics from early 1900's was fantastic.

The Wolfsonian is based on one man's eclectic collection of artistic, industrial and design items from around 1850-1950, ranging from the beautifuk to th mundane. The special exhibit of the posters of Julius Klinger was excellent.

I loved the Wolfsonian and can't recommend it highly enough! If you're a fan of Art Deco, and who isn't? You can easily spend all day at the Wolfsonian. I even loved the elevator!

Friends told us not to miss visiting during our stay in Miami Beach and they were absolutely right. An unbelievable collection both broad and derp. Mickey collected everything he could over a fifty (I think) year period. Great place to spend several hours reviewing his...More
