World Erotic Art Museum
Near the Wolfsonian is a museum dedicated to an entirely different sort of manmade artistry. The World Erotic Art Museum (1205 Washington Ave., 305/532-9336, http://weam.com, 11 a.m.–midnight daily, $15) documents centuries worth of erotic art, from pre-Columbian sculptures and classical nudes to examples of pop-culture sexuality.
The World Erotic Art Museum is well organized, if a bit cramped, and is notable for the fact that it doesn’t continually attempt to apologize for its contents by applying unnecessary academic context to the works. The owner-curators clearly have a sense of humor and an eye for art, so while much in the museum is tasteful—if graphic—there’s a lot that is shocking and witty.
