10. The Wolfsonian – FIU
Strangely, the museum began life in the 1920s as the Washington Storage Company – Miami’s wealthier winter residents used to store their valuables here when they were away. Evnetually, in 1986, one Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. decided to buy it outright as a home for his vast assemblage of the rich detritus of modernity. It opened to the public in 1995. Approximately 200,000 objects include decorative and propaganda art, furniture and more.
