I found this museum to very well set out with lots to look at. Decent price for $10, though I noticed afterwards it was free for military members, which I didn't realise. Worth the visit I think though and great little shop to visit afterwards.

This is a great museum in a remarkable building, at a convenient location on Washington Avenue, not far from the beach. It was a real delight to find this museum and its temporary exhibition on Dutch design. Both the exterior and interior had been transformed...More

Rainy day in South Beach, perfect for visiting the Wolfsonian at Florida International University. The museum presents a handful of topics with clarity and good explanations.

If like us you love Art Deco style, and dream of living in a Poirot set, then the Wolf's onion is an absolute 100% must see museum.

Other than the beaches! The Wolfsonian is an icon of history, art and cultural analysis: smart and fun! On a cloudy day, head over.

Amazing colour, walls and floors plus a beautiful well before you enter the lifts. We really enjoyed viewing the exhibition and enjoyed the fact that there was hardly anyone there so we could view the artefacts at a leisurely pace. There's also a lovely cafe...More

We thought we should visit at least one museum/gallery whilst in Miami and chose this one. It was a really good choice. A variety of exhibits are spread over a number of floors. Covering fairly modern developments in art and design the whole thing felt...More
