I'll admit I may be showing a little bit of partiality here, but I think Maitland Art and History Center is one of the best things going in Central Florida and Maitland. I've taken classes there for several years and haven't been disappointed in any of them. The instructors are outstanding and it's so cool to take classes in the facility that Andre Smith established for artists. The art gallery is small but enjoyable. The Maitland History Museum and the Telephone Museum, both next door, offer an interesting view into local history (the history museum) and telecommunication (the telephone museum). After visiting the telephone museum you'll be asking yourself, "wow, how did we get along without cellphones?"!
