Easy to get to in historic and scenic Winter Park. Free parking and low, low admission - $4 for seniors, $5 adults, and worth twice that and more. Strong focus on American arts with an outstanding, they claim most comprehensive, collection of L.C. Tiffany art - and much more than some stained glass lamps. Who knew the man had such... More

We were recently in the Orlando area and went to Winter Park to the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum. I did not realize the variety of art objects that Tiffany designed - so I was wowed by the variety of the collection, the wonderful history lesson of that era and most of all the Chapel interior that was on display at...

The museum starts with a film covering the foundation and creation of the museum. Definitely start here. The Morse's collected and salvaged, after the fire at the Tiffany Long Island home, an amazing collection including lamps, windows and the chapel from the Chicago World's Fair. We drove to Winter Park from Tampa specifically to tour the museum. Definitely worth visiting!

If you love Tiffany works of art, you must go. Even if you don't, you will. This delightful museum is full of all kinds of Tiffany art, as well as other works of American art. The Tiffany pieces are exquisite. I appreciated being able to see the windows up close, to see the variety of glass, texture, and 3-d qualities.... More

The Morse Museum is just north of the downtown Winter Park area and worth the walk. It has a beautiful collection of Tiffany art objects as the centerpiece of the museums collection. The chapel and the daffodil terrace were the most interesting to me - but like any good museum others will find something that catches them and like all... More

If you're looking for an activity off the beaten path for the typical Orlando tourist, look no further! I thoroughly enjoyed this museum and was intrigued by the quantity and variety of pieces. First, I suggest starting with the video in the main hall. After watching the video (which we did halfway through), the entire museum took on much more... More

The Morse is beautiful, wonderful, excellent and worth at least half a day of your time. The story of how Dr. McKean and his wife salvage the contents of Laurelton Hall in Oyster Bay, NY is amazing. And now that all he collected is on display, everyone must enjoy. This is a delight and is so well curated and presented...every... More

Our visit started with a movie about the history of Tiffany and the museum which the adults found interesting, but the 7yo thought was too long. She really liked the room with the altar and pointed out many of the intricate details.
