This is a lovely place to visit, well worth drive from Orlando for a nice break from theme parks and much needed injection of culture and beauty. The Tiffany glass pieces in this museum are incredibly beautiful and they have an extensive collection. The Chapel is fantastic, really the most extraordinary place. My only complaint is that you aren't allowed to take photos of any of the artwork inside, which is a terrible shame. I think taking photos without flash would not harm the artworks. They do sell postcards and pictures in gift shop but they are very limited and do not capture the collection. I didn't want to buy a book either, as this is heavy to lug back when travelling. I wanted to take photo of the architecture in the sitting area and I wasn't allowed to do this either. Such a shame. Otherwise, stellar museum and experience.

Charles Hosmer Morse Museum is a huge collection of the works of Tiffany art glass. Includes windows from Tiffany original mansion that was destroyed by fire.

This museum is a gift from the heavens. It's a small footprint as museums go, but it gives an outsize impression due to the absolutely top notch quality of the items on display. This building (apparently) has the largest collection of LC Tiffany items in the country! The crown jewel of the collection is a complete chapel designed by LCT for the Chicago Columbian Exposition of 1893. It's breathtaking. The museum added a new wing in the last couple of years that allows more items to be displayed.

If you are in the Winter Park area, you should not miss this attraction if you enjoy museums at all. Five dollars to see this collection is the best admissions bargain you're liable to get in your lifetime. The museum is well staffed, quiet and cool. They also have a nice little gift shop. A couple of hours will suffice, leaving you plenty of time to stroll Park Avenue or ride the Boat Tour if you want. This should be part of your time in Winter Park!! Without any doubt.

The Morse museum is beautiful, and a must see for anyone who is a fan of L C Tiffany. The entrance fee is VERY reasonable. Winter Park is fortunate to have such a collection in one nice location. Parking is convienant. Access into the building is easy. You will be in awe of all the beautiful pieces, to include vases, windows, lighting, jewelry and large panels. There are several options available for tours. Check before you go to see about special events. Nice gift shop.

Very interesting and historical displays of Tiffany art and design. New exhibit of Tiffany's Long Island estate should not be missed.
