A "must see" even if stained glass is "not your thing". You have probably seen pictures, postcards or other similar printed material of Tiffany stained glass, and feel like you have a good idea of how "pretty" it. One visit to this unassuming museum in lovely downtown Winter Park, Florida will likely shock you with how much better seeing the... More

If you haven't been to the Morse you need to go. It has beautiful Tiffany artwork - pottery, paintings, lamps, jewelry, lighting, furniture, etc, etc. It's worth a trip. It is free on Friday evenings. There is a neat museum shop attached.

In addition to works of art by various American artists this museum has the largest collection of Tiffany works. It was well worth the trip.

We spent 2 hours here before our flight home on a Sunday afternoon. Museum offered a tour with a docent that lasted 45 minutes and gave the history of the tiffany lamps, windows, etc. The museum is not huge, and two hours was the right amount of time to see it. In the middle of the Winter Park downtown area... More

The Morse Museum houses the world's most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) including the designer's jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded glass lamps and windows, and the chapel interior he designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It is unbelievable that one person by the name of Jeanette Genius McLean, who founded the museum... More

I have been visiting here for years but moved away and still make a point that anytime I am in the area I try to visit. It is an amazing collection – simply beautiful! It is the ‘most comprehensive’ collection of Tiffany glass right there at the end of Park Avenue! It is a small museum but the collection is... More

The worlds largest collection of Tiffany's art. Amazing displays. My favorite is his chapel interior from the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Words just cannot describe the beauty of this room. It was worth the $5 admission fee just to see this display. Beware of the docents. They see everything. I learned the hard way to NOT TOUCH the glass. Whatever.... More

This was a very reasonably priced museum ($4. for seniors). The Tiffany Glass and other art was breath taking! The chapel was my favorite - peaceful and serene. The place was quiet with guards in every room. You need to look and not touch, and no photography of any kind. That was difficult for me because I love to take... More

I am not usually a museum person - but I loved this one. The history of the Tiffany empire and the beautiful pieces were so interesting. The museum has an app to listen from your "smart" phone. Loved that feature. The museum was affordable $5. Its a must see if you are in the area.
