Think, Shop, and Eat at The Dynamo Museum Shop and Café!

Stop by The Dynamo Museum Shop and Café for some unusual gifts and creative food this Art Deco weekend. The Dynamo Shop offers a selection of carefully selected, unconventional gifts, books, and films, much of it inspired by The Wolfsonian's collection of modern objects from 1885-1945. The Dynamo Café features a sophisticated menu in a casual and artfully designed setting, also inspired by and reflecting the themes of the museum's collection.

The Dynamo Museum Shop and Café is open noon-6pm Sunday, Monday Tuesday, Saturday, noon-9pm Thursday and Friday; closed Wednesdays. For questions or information, call 305.535.2680 or paola@thewolf.fiu.edu.
