Surprisingly easy and well-run.
Parking was a breeze, and free. The senior tickets are for those sixty and up.
The Basquait show was strong. You could see that this young artist painted on torn cardboard for lack of funds, yet worked with serious diligence.

But the show of religious art was the stunning surprise. What amazing art!
Go see this exhibit on loan from the M&G museum.

The museum is underwhelming for the price it charges for admission. If you are a lover of religiously-themed art, you will love it. It is only one floor of art. There are some great masters, and at the time we visited there was a very modern exhibit which was intriguing. A docent/volunteer was helpful in expanding upon what we knew about certain artists and works. Overall, a disappointment; I wouldn't bother going back.

Please stay clear! Not a friendly environment for POC! Whatever you do, do not waste your time here. Like many locals will say there is an odd vibe and the museum’s exhibits are old and amateur at best. If you find yourself in the area, there’s many alternatives that are worth your support.

First time visitor. The art museum is a small regional art museum with a collection and exhibits. Compared to other small art museums in similar regional size cities, I felt the collection to be lacking in quality over quantity. There are some nice paintings though and enjoyed some of the collection, so the museum is worth a visit if you have never been there.

The Orlando Fringe Festival partnered with the Orlando Museum of Art to host one of our fundraising events – Fab Fringe 2022. It was crucial for our sponsorship gathering that we have the optimal space to host a performance, serve dinner and drinks, and provide room for patrons to dance and wind down while supporting such an important cause – the Orlando Museum of Art delivered on all fronts. The SunTrust auditorium was perfect for our magician performance/mentalist show, and guests were able to interact and view the action with no obstacles. The meeting rooms were a delightful set-up for our catering menu, and guests could navigate from the tables to the bar with comfort. And, last but not least, the rotunda was the perfect party location for our DJ, additional performers, and reserved sponsor tables – everyone was free to dance and drink the night away! Orlando Fringe is incredibly pleased to have been able to work with the museum on this event, and we look forward to more collaboration in the future.

This is a very nice museum on beautiful grounds with what appears to be a limited collection for a city the size and importance of Orlando. When we visited the majority of what was on display was on loan from other museums or collections. The photographs on display were excellent and very well displayed. The other exhibits were well laid out and easy to view. The descriptive signage was excellent. If you go, be sure and ask about any reciprocity arrangement they have with other museums that could eliminate the need for you to pay an entrance fee.

Omart? No, not a retail store, although there is a gift shop within. OMART is Orlando Museum of Art, Central Florida’s gem since 1924. OMART had featured Festival of Trees, a Christmas theme setting that included ornately decorated dining table settings. The festive trees and table settings are created by local designers and auctioned to raise funds for the museum. But not the tree in the accompanying photo, that depicts Dale Chihuly’s 2004 Citron and Cobalt Tower, an astounding “tree” of glass on steel armature. While impressive, the decorated tables and trees attracted only my passing glances, as age and debilitating medical condition prevent formal entertaining.

I chose, instead, to study classical art by masters, such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Peter Paul Rubens, Edgar Degas, Rembrandt—and others, some dating to the 15th century. Many of works are loaned and may change. Corporate sponsors feature contemporary art and photography. Since many of the centuries-old works were commissioned by the Catholic Church, depictions are of religious figures or biblical scenes.

Admission is $20, $12 for seniors and first responders, and free for active military or Vets, with valid ID. The museum is closed on Mondays and holidays, and hours are limited from 10:00–4:00, and on Sunday, starting at noon. Parking spaces are limited and cost $7. For those with limited budgets, there is a small sculpture garden near the entrance, at no cost. Still, the art is sensory overload. I recommend avoiding a visit during special events and near holidays, as crowds tend to gather in certain areas. OMART intends to construct a museum tower in downtown Orlando adjacent to Lake Eola.

Had a couple of hours to kill before my flight back home. Decided to nurture my soul and took a drive to the Orlando Museum of Art. Nice museum, very informative - good varied collection. Nicely organized and a tranquil atmosphere.

This beautiful building has a great collection of art. But I was completely blown away by the Florida Prize art exhibits. It’s easy to manage as you wander through. I tried to buy things in the gift shop, but nobody ever showed up to the counter. I went in 3 times.
