"The Wolfsonian matters because it is one of the most unique museums in the world in terms of its collection and its shows that have been exhibited. In the Miami cultural scene it stands apart as one of the crown jewels.”
A Wolfsonian-FIU Supporter

Change. Expansion. Evolution. Transformation. Now is an exciting time of growth at The Wolfsonian.

What does this mean for you and for the museum? In one word, it means more. Through the expansion of both our physical presence to downtown Miami and digital spaces we plan to make more of the collection accessible to more people in more ways. To accomplish these goals, we are asking for your support. Our Annual Fund Drive is now under way, and we hope you will participate. Without you—without your support, your interest, and your patronage—we would not be here.

We recently announced a major gift from museum founder Mitchell Wolfson, Jr.—a beautiful space in downtown Miami and more than 25,000 objects. “Micky’s generosity in making this transformative gift is an amazing boon to the museum, the university, and to the cultural life of the Miami community,” says Cathy Leff, The Wolfsonian’s director.

We hope you will join Micky in making a donation. In addition to supporting the museum’s growth, gifts to the Annual Fund make our exhibitions, programming, publications, and digital projects possible, and support the conservation and growth of the collection. Donations to the Annual Fund are tax deductible and can be made online here. If you would prefer to make a donation over the phone or through the mail, or if you have questions, please contact the development department at or 305.535.2656.
