Am not usually a museum fan (prefer their shops, to be honest), especially when the sun is shining. But this was special. The entranceway is stunning and the collections very well curated. Friendly and knowledgeable security guards, too. I randomly, I also enjoyed the stairs and the toilets. Oh, and the shop staff were lovely and they had a good... More

We enjoyed a terrific morning strolling through this museum. Quite an impressive collection of Art Deco throughout the building. The Modern Dutch exhibit was very impressive. The super knowledgeable security guard gave us an in-depth interpretation of some of the paintings - awesome asset to this museum (wish I could remember his name)

A group of us visited the Wolfsonian after two years and loved the new Dutch design exhibition. The museum's entrance is transformed and the original exhibits are as good as ever. It still amazes me that one of the greatest Irish artists, Harry Clarke, has one of his best pieces exhibiting here instead of in Ireland. What a backward country... More

I took my aunt and uncle who are around 80 years told to this museum and they had a wonderful time. My aunt loved to read all the descriptions of the various objects and works of art. We started at the top floor and completed all the floors in two hours. The layout of the exhibits was superb and the... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this museum by accident as I'd heard about it but didn't know where it was. I was waiting for another tour to start (Culinary tours) and just walked up the (Washington) street to pass the time beforehand and found that the Wolfsonian had free entry on Fridays. So after my first tour finished I... More

4 floors of 20's, 30's paraphenalia - massively interesting if you like decor, architecture, art and engineering.

We visited on our final morning in Miami South Beach. We got the "senior" half-price discount and it cost just $5 each to visit. It is a really interesting museum with great exhibits. We particularly enjoyed the furniture, household items and domestic appliances. There are also great posters and graphics from the 1930s. We spent a couple of hours looking... More
