“Worth the visit; great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

The Morse Museum is a true treasure. The story of Tiffany's Laureton Hall alone is worth the price of admission. The Mueeum so spotless inside, displays are well presented, and the interior is full of surprises. Visit the gift shop for some artistic treasures that will brighten up any room in the house.

“Tiffany Glass at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Morse museum is a hidden gem. The display of glassworks is magnificent. The museum can be thoroughly viewed in about 3-4 hours. The Tiffany glass works on display are superb. The chapel inside is beautiful----amazingly reconstructed. Cost of the museum is a bargain. Good free parking close by.

“We loved it as much as the Harry Potter attraction at Universal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

If you at all are intrigued by Tiffany lights/glass, this is a must experience. It's the perfect size, the collection is exquisite, the stories are fascinating, the beauty draws and amazes, and you cannot help but feel touched by Tiffany's gift and deeply impressed by the surprising textures and rich tones of his creations.

On top of it, the museum is on main street Winter Park with a fun collection of shops and restaurants.

In our minds, it ranked up there with the Harry Potter ride. All right...they are radically different from each other, but those are the two must sees we'll head to on our next visit to Orlando (along with the Premium Outlet Mall :) ).

“Small but beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

A complete and expertly curated museum with captivating Tiffany pieces. On a hot Florida day, this cool and quiet gem is a welcome haven from the hustle and bustle of the theme park area. Combine it with a quaint trip through the canals by a local senior captain or come on a Saturday to enjoy the farmer's market nearby as well.
