Located in the heart of Miami Beach, Wolfsonian displays Micky Wolfson's sprawling collection of European and American art and design from 1885-1945. The museum has a good gift shop and a cafe. Admission is free after 6pm on Fridays.
Lovely collection of Art Deco and late 19th Century/early 20th Century design. Also, a great museum shop with excellent bookstore and cafe!
One of the coolest museums I've ever been to. A collection of things, their clever displays illustrate trends in design over the last 80 or so years with everyday consumer items. The static displays are fascinating, and the rotating display on the top floor when I visited was a complete history of the wine labels of Chateau Mouton, and the artists that created them. Simply awesome.
Quite a little gem of a museum -- while I was there, it was an exhibition of items from 1895 to 1945 highlighting the apex of industrialism in the US and Europe. Beautiful and thoughtfully curated collection with great historical context and framing -- a nice break from the noise and crowds on Ocean.
