The Morse is a great museum in the heart of Winter Park. It's both inspiring and educational. The lead glass is beautiful and learning of Tiffany's life and home was wonderful. So much more than lamps! Treat yourself with a trip to Winter Park and enjoy this great museum. Yes, I agree, a "treasure"! (discounts too for students and seniors-I... More

You will want to take your visting friends to this beautiful museum. It displays a large and beautiful collection of Tiffany that Mr. & Mrs. Morse collected over many years. It is definitely worth the drive to Winter Park to see it. Winter Park is a lovely small town with several good restaurants and designer clothing stores.

If you like Tiffany's art glass, this is the mother load. Not much in the way of paintings or prints but many beautiful Tiffany windows and pieces. The wing devoted to his home is fascinating. I definitely recommend the museum. Admission is very reasonable and they have free parking on site.

This small museum is a treasure to visit. Easily done in an hour, or take several. Very quiet, very much an adult museum. There are alarms on some of the exhibits, I set one off merely by pointing in the direction of a piece I admired, and didn't even cross the barrier doing so! Staff/docents in every room, or they...

An extensive, wonderful museum and gift shop for anyone interested in Tiffany glass and American art. It costs $ 5.00 per adult, less for seniors and students and you can come and go and do part of the museum and leave for coffee or lunch and return. The museum is free for those taking the train to Winter Park. It... More

Love Tiffany? You" ain't seen nothin' " until you visit this Museum, slam dunk in the heart of a charming, cobblestone-paved town, and worth a trip from anywhere. We've seen and admired Tiffany's works in many museums, including the Met in New York, but there is absolutely nothing to compare with what you will see here. You might want to... More

Although this is a museum certainly worth exploring for Tiffany-related art and informative exhibits, I hate going to museums where you are constantly closely monitored; it's just an uncomfortable feeling, so I'm docking several stars for stuffiness. Our children are generally well-behaved compared to most kids. Understandably, going to a museum for grown-ups didn't hold their attention (we had no... More

We really enjoyed this museum. Well curated, just the right size and I liked the introductory films. The security folks are well-informed and fun to talk to as well. Highly recommended.

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.
