Attraction details
Owner description: Set on the Rollins College campus overlooking beautiful Lake Virginia, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum offers an intimate and unique experience in Winter Park. Among the more than 5,000 works ranging from antiquity to contemporary, we hold the only European Old Masters collection in the Orlando area, a sizable American art collection, and the forward-looking Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art, shown both at the museum and at The Alfond Inn a few blocks from campus. As an educational unit of Rollins College, we are a museum dedicated to teaching through and with art. We strive to engage visitors of all ages with our collection – displayed thematically in “Conversations” among centuries, styles and media - and to share our innovative exhibitions, which change seasonally and feature art for all tastes, from the early Renaissance to cutting-edge contemporary. Educational programs, offered free of charge, include gallery talks (both at the museum and at The Alfond Inn), lectures, panel discussions, films, as well as hands-on art activities, special tours, and scavenger hunts for the younger visitors.

“A beautiful art exhibit”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The wife insisted on seeing it and I'm glad she did. It is a small, but beautiful exhibit on the campus of Rollins College. Even has reserved museum parking within yards of the entrance. Worth the price of admission. Highly recommend a visit.

Loved our visit to the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Located in downtown Winter Park, plan to spend a day in this quaint town. The museum is adjacent to Rollins College and is located lakeside. There are shade trees to relax under, and Park Avenue close-by, within walking distance. Top notch!

“A small gem”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

An elegant little gallery on the water, with great exhibits. Often empty. They have occasional evening events with music that I hope to attend. A must-see on the Rollins campus: combine a trip here with a stop at the Morse Museum and also Polasek museum and gardens for a great afternoon of art in Winter Park.
