Traveling In Our Fabulous Gay World: The Naomi Wilzig Collection - World Erotic Art Museum

We have just found one of the most unusual, interesting and exciting museums in the world. In our travels from coast to coast we have NEVER visited such a fabulous museum. Located in Miami Beach, Florida at 1205 Washington Avenue, owner Naomi Wilzig has created a world class museum featuring erotic art in all forms. We do need to state that this is NOT a "porno" collection but an "erotic art" collection. They are made out of wood, porcelain, glass, ivory, bronze, silver and every conceivable substance known to man.

There are over 4,000 artifacts in the museum which includes biblical, mythological, antiques, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, African, Ethnographic, South American, European/Victorian, Art Nouveau/Deco, Saloon/pin up, Gay and Lesbian, Surrealism , Folk Art, Fetish, as well as modern masters and contemporary art. Many of the Gay and Lesbian artifacts dates back centuries as well as modern items.
The museum is housed in a high tech designed museum with over 12,000 square feet of display space and 20 separate rooms. Most of the artifacts are one of a kind rare items and unbelievably fascinating.
There is also a large selection of paintings, watercolors and drawings from throughout the ages. Among the thousands of items on display are a one of a kind hand carved "Penis" four post bed from Germany, hand carved ivory figurines from China, dozens of sterling silver items, furniture, music boxes, posters, lamps, figurines and just hundreds of other unusual items. This truly is a very rare treat for anyone to visit.
After you get half way thru the museum you think that there could not possibly be anything else, but then you enter another room and you are amazed at what else you will see. They also have special rotating exhibits from time to time so if you are in the area, but sure and visit often.

However the real treat is to meet the owner Naomi Wilzig herself. She is originally from New Jersey and moved her collection to the museum a few years ago and since then, thousands of visitors from all over the world have toured her museum. She is one of the most fabulous people we have met in our travels. She loves what she is doing and it shows. You will usually find her at the museum on most days giving tours. She loves showing off her collection and why not? She has the only erotic art museum in the world ! She is simply fun, funny, fascinating and full of life. Just way too bad that more people cannot be as energetic as she is. When she walks into a room with her smile, everyone smiles. She is that type of a person.
The World Erotic Art Museum is located at 1205 Washington Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida. Their telephone number is 866.969.9336 and their website is www.weam.com. They are open daily Monday thru Thursday from 11 AM to 10 PM and Friday and Saturday from 11 AM to Midnight. For visitors from abroad, no trip to the United States would be complete without visiting this museum and for visitors from the continental United States, be sure and put it on your "bucket list".


On a side note, Naomi Wilzig just happens to be the Mother of Sir Ivan, the outstanding, exciting, world-famous singer who is also referred to as "Peaceman". He has done so much for the GLBT community. While we were in South Beach we went out to a restaurant and had dinner with both of them. VISIT her museum and BUY`` his CD's. His website is www.sirivan.com
Always remember to have fun when traveling, meet new people and talk to everyone!
