ABOUT THE WOLFSONIAN–FIU
The Wolfsonian is a museum, library, and research center that uses objects to illustrate the persuasive power of art and design, to explore what it means to be modern, and to tell the story of social, historical, and technological changes that have transformed our world. The collection comprises approximately 180,000 objects from the 1850s to the 1950s—the height of the Industrial Revolution through the aftermath of the Second World War—in a variety of media including furniture; industrial-design objects; works in glass, ceramics, and metal; rare books; periodicals; ephemera; works on paper; paintings; textiles; and medals.
The Wolfsonian is located at 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL. Admission is $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students, and children age 6–12; and free for Wolfsonian members, State University System of Florida staff and students with ID, and children under six. The museum is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am–6pm; Friday, 10am–9pm; Sunday, noon–6pm; and is closed on Wednesday. Contact us at 305.531.1001 or visit us online at wolfsonian.org for further information.
Be among the first to see our stunning new exhibition Promising Paradise: Cuban Allure, American Seduction! With free admission all day, happy hour specials in the café after 4pm, and tours led by collector Vicki Gold Levi and the exhibition’s co-curators, Frank Luca and Rosa Lowinger, you couldn’t pick a better date to rumba back in time to early 20th-century Cuba.
Learn more about The Wolfsonian collection and related art and design themes during a 45-minute, free guided tour of the permanent collection or temporary exhibitions.
