  • It's a beautiful museum with amazing art deco architecture. It's thoughtfully curated and there's a cafe in the gift shop.
  • Pure bliss for an antiquarian seeking refuge from the Miami heat to relish in the finery, findings and curiosities collected by Micky Wolfson. Although only the first floor of the museum is currently open, it's enough to satiate your senses and set your expectations for this cultural blossom to fully bloom again in November.
