It's a beautiful museum with amazing art deco architecture. It's thoughtfully curated and there's a cafe in the gift shop.
You won't even notice that there's a museum on Washington &10st. Small and free ))
Although the museum is tiny, I really liked it there, you have to say right away, it didn't cost any admission either. the exhibits are very interesting. and also I liked the museum shop very much.
This is a must if you’re interested in Art Deco or 20th Century Design. The majority of the display items are objects; household appliances, furniture and items of commercial usage. There are a few paintings & posters from the Art Deco era, and various cool items from world fairs. Fair value at $12, my only complaint is that the actual display space is quite small for such a large building just 2 floors, 2 further floors are offices and one floor is a library. Would have loved to have seen more of the collection! On a positive note there is however no restriction on taking photos.
Fabulous and eclectic museum dedicated to Art Deco in all its forms from furniture to art to appliances to textiles. Not to be missed if your are an art deco fan. Don’t miss the gift shop.
