World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM) Tours and Activities
Located in Miami’s Art Deco District, The World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM) was founded in 2005 and is the only museum of its kind in the United States – exclusively filled with erotic art. The collection includes over 4,000 works of international art, dating back as far as 300 BC.
The 12,000-square-foot museum is the world’s largest public collection of erotic art and was founded by Naomi Wilzig, an American art collector and writer. There are pieces from noted artists on display, including Rembrandt, Rodin, Picasso and Dali, while modern pieces include everything from countless sex toys in various shapes to dominatrix Barbie dolls.
If you’re surprised to see Rembrandt’s name on the list of noted artists, you’ll soon learn about his erotic works here. “Rembrandt’s Erotic Secrets” is an exhibit of 20 etchings, several of which are now permanently housed in the museum. Another popular exhibit is “African Treasures,” which explores fertility worship in Africa as it relates to objects and practices both inside and outside of the bedroom.
Wilzig was honored with a Key to the City of Miami Beach in 2006, and the city also designated October 16 as “World Erotic Art Museum Day” in 2011.
