Review Summary:

While this is a small little museum it's reasonably priced at $7 for adults ($5 for seniors and children). It has very interesting collection of 18th to 20th Century pieces, with a lot of Art Deco, art nouveau, american industrial and furniture.

The Wolfsonian Museum resides in a renovated 7 story warehouse in Miami. The conception of the museum was the inspiration of Mitchell Wolfson in 1986.

An avid collector, Mr. Wolfson generously donated significant historical and creative artifacts so all could have an opportunity to appreciate the artists and innovators that created these classic to the turn of the century gems. The Wolfsonian Museum gallery spans two continents, Europe and North America, through the years of 1885-1945. It is very impressive taking you back to a time gone by. In 1997, The Wolfsonian Museum opened its doors to the public in association with Florida International University. This multimedia collection reflects the social, political and technological developments during an impressive era in the world of art, interior design and unique architectural construction. The Wolfsonian Museum occupies three floors of this 56,000 square foot building where you can tour the grace and charm of furniture, industrial design objects, glass, metal work, paintings, sculpture, fine art prints, posters, rare books, periodicals and facades from period buildings from a time when craftsmanship was honored and revered. The public is able to view the architectural archives of John and Drew Eberson, two major architects designing many movie theaters from 1909-1988. There are coffee shops, store fronts and offices also in this spacious location making it a very enjoyable and relaxing day. Something to entice everyone of all ages to discover. The Wolfsonian Museum also has a branch in Nervi, Italy.
