Located in the heart of Miami Beach's Art Deco District, The Wolfsonian promotes the collection, preservation, and interpretation of art and design from the period 1885-1945. Through exhibitions and public programs, The Wolfsonian investigates the ways in which material culture both shapes and reflects human experience. The collection includes more than 70,000 objects-from rare books to decorative arts and furniture-drawn primarily from North America, Europe, and Russia/Soviet Union.
