AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Mitchell “Micky” Wolfson has devoted much of his life to the painstaking assembly of industrial artifacts and items that date between 1885 and 1945. Make no mistake—these are not your typical museum exhibits; instead of paintings, sculpture and heirlooms you’ll pore over arts and crafts items made by British reformers during the British Arts & Crafts Movement, pre-Modern decorative art objects from 19th-century Germany; a fascinating compilation of political propaganda materials from the United States and Europe; paraphernalia related to travel—models, postcards, brochures and prints of ocean liners, planes, trains and more. The on-site Wolfsonian Library comprises nearly 50,000 pieces of reading material exploring the ways—social, aesthetic, technological, political—that design has influenced how we perceive the world. Admission is $7 for adults; $5 for seniors, students and children ages 6-12; free for Wolfsonian members and for visitors on Fridays 6PM-9PM. Closed Wednesdays.
