    Great museum and we had a lot of fun looking at what was on offer, the staff were great and even helped us get some amazing pictures.
    The different types of optical illusions shown were really fun to see. The ability to take photos in these various illusions is a nice touch and was unexpected.

    A couple of minor downsides, in my opinion it's a little pricey for the amount of time you spend in the museum as it's not a massive place, I really wish there would have been more to the experience as what is there is really good.

    The museum was far too hot and overcrowded, seemed a little pointless having an entry time when so many people are already inside, this just caused for longer wait times at most of the exhibits and for some people to cut the lines to experience these.

    That being said, it really was a great place to experience and I would recommend for anyone who is in the area and never visited before.

    Comparing to other museums I ve been, $20 is too expensive for its size and content
    Not all the spaces are filled and feels a little vague/ empty

    Free parking adjacent to the museum and directly across the street from the Orlando Art museum and the science center is the Mennello Museum of American Art.

    This morning they had yoga from 10:30-12:30 in the sculpture garden. And they had free family fun day. Look up their calendar of events, seems packed full!

    The museum displays paintings/sculptures + contains at its core a permanent collection of paintings by Earl Cunningham (1893–1977). The Cunningham collection was donated by Marilyn + Michael Mennello of Winter Park, Florida. Other exhibitions show works of traditional/contemporary American artists.

    To know a bit more about Earl Cunningham (1893–1977). He was a twentieth-century American folk artist. He was a self-taught artist who painted mostly landscapes of the East coast. He used vivid colors, flat perspective, and a few recurrent themes. He does not seem to care if his perspective was off or that he has flamingos in a Northern climate (I think I saw them in a painting that was either in MA or MI).

    Cunningham was born in ME and moved to FL.
    His art has received many awards and is displayed throughout many fine galleries. They also have a documentary that plays in the gallery.

    Take time to see the other temporary works and the sculpture garden.

    What a great story brought to life by the amazing work of artist Ivan Clarke. This was fun for the whole family and the underwater ball pit scene was a big hit!
