This is a great way to spend an hour or two out of the sun. The collection is quite wide and varied with something to appeal to everyone. The air-conditioning is a bit fierce so take a sweater.

Even the elevators look like artwork! This had some interesting exhibits and pieces on display. I'll admit I expected it to be bigger than it was but we still spent a couple of hours looking around.

We return to the Wolfsonian annually when we visit Miami Beach. The exhibits are engaging for viewers of all ages. It's a remarkable collection. We had the privilege of attending a presentation on a local architect, which was top rate. The gift shop is filled with playful and sophisticated items for all ages. Lots of fun.

The Wolfsonian is part of FIU (Florida International University) a private university. The Wolfsonian has a unique collection of items since its specialty is 'Graphic Arts & Propaganda Art.' The items in the main foyer come from many areas of the United States of America including Buffalo, New York Art Deco office buildings.
The furniture collection is selective and has outstanding examples of beau arts and art deco items.
It is the graphic arts collection which should not be missed. I'm very sorry I did not know of the "free night" and party or opening party. I'll make certain I find out the details of these events at The Wolfsonian next time I'm in Miami Beach
You can walk or take the Miami Beach free Trolley to The Wolfsonian from almost any hotel in Miami Beach.
