Nice little museum right on Park Avenue in Winter Park. Enjoyed learning about and seeing the art of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Don't miss the chapel. Also appreciated the reasonable price for entry.

This museum has more Louis Tiffany pieces than I've ever seen elsewhere. Paintings, ceramics, and his famous stained glass are all on view here. Stained glass doors from his home on Long Island, NY along with a chapel that he designed and built are housed here. Every room has a brochure to explain what you are seeing. The cost is... More

We first visited this museum about 10 years ago and found it very interesting but small. However, with the new addition it is definitely fantastic and worthwhile. There is now an beautiful atrium with indoor furniture and interesting new exhibits that makes it so much better. The Tiffany glass alone is worth the trip! The paintings and additional period woodwork... More

Tucked away in this quaint little city is a gem! The history of the most impressive collection of Tiffany glass and how it was preserved and brought to Winter Park is almost as delightful as the art itself. Almost. Tiffany windows are absolutely amazing in color and quality of work and the uniqueness of style. You must visit this grand... More

According to Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art “houses the most comprehensive collection of the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany [1848–1933],” a major collection of American art pottery, and fine collections of 19th & 20th century American paintings, graphics and decorative arts. And you thought the name Tiffany is renowned only for dragonfly-inspired glass art... More

I enjoyed an afternoon at the Morse Museum. The collection is not solely devoted to Tiffany objects, but they do dominate the collection. I did not know much about Tiffany before my visit and the museum presents an excellent historical perspective of his life and work, as well as the story of the Rollins College founders/benefactors of the museum.

This is a great little focused museum. It is located on the main downtown street, costs $5 , parking is ok weekdays but is probably very difficult weekends. This museum is primarily for Tiffany art - stained glass lamps & windows, etc. but there are other artists showcased. It also details Tiffanys life, history as it affects Winter Park. Impressive...
