Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts in Fort Lauderdale is a treat to visit! Older children will enjoy it as much as adults, especially because it is full of colorful objects. Everywhere you turn there is the next delightful thing! There are little royal Doulton figurines, glass hearts, fused glass tapestries, clear rainbow plates, glass starfish bent in many shapes, Egyptian pottery, incredible Wedgwood Blue pottery, fairy vases, Royal Worcester porcelain statuettes of dainty ladies, leering face jugs by the Martin brothers, Moorcroft genie bottles, Zsolnay iridescent Art Nouveau pottery, and opalescent glass figures by Lalique.

Modern blown-glass items are also pleasing: foaming waves, neck ties, stiletto heels, and a gorgeous chandelier of butterflies. There are also large paintings, tile mosaics, and sculptures such as a carousel horse. If you need inspiration for your imagination, come here!
The neighborhood where the museum is located doesn't have much to offer, but there is an easy parking lot and it is a short drive from the coastal areas of Hollywood Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
When you first enter, the man at the desk gives you a ten minute introductory speech about the collection, and then you are free to roam as you please. 
The museum is located on the second floor of the building (by elevator), and the entry door is on the opposite side of the building from the parking lot.
