  • An absolute jewel! To visit and view such a collection of diverse works from one of the greatest American Artists who ever lived, who chose to create his visions of breath taking beauty in a medium that many believed could not withstand the test of time, yet here over 100+ years later for many of Tiffany's works on display at Morse, they remain as vibrant, illuminating and inspiring as first unveiled a century before. This is a delightful body of work displaying the artistry of a great American Master. I had always wanted to travel someday to see what was left of his great contribution to the World of Art, our Nation and Humanity. Here in this lovely little town, a tribute worthy of his gift of unsurpassed artistic brilliance for all to see. This precious gift, the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum, the world's largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany's master works, in the here and now, is still today illuminating a bright path that highlights the importance of Art, Beauty and unshakable Faith in a man or woman's ability to capture and express nature's wonder and grace in light. A big Thank You to all those dedicated to protecting, preserving and sharing this national treasure for generations to come.
  • I was a little reticent about spending time in a museum whose claim to fame centers around stained glass and 20th century crafts. However, the layout of this museum makes for a graceful and educational foray into the masterful work of Tiffany and the moment in American history that he occupied. This museum also serves to document some of Winter Parks' formative history, with regard to Mr. Morse's contributions to his once small town and the philanthropic efforts of his Granddaughter and grandson-in-law. Moreover, this museum is filled with beautiful art, and the reconstructed chapel is awe inspiring. Definitely worth visiting on a Friday (when admission is free), or any other day.
  • Fabulous collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s unbelievable works of art ranging from his sketches as a teen to his elaborate and magnificent chapel. Cell phone audio guide available and brochures about each area of the museum available to review at a later, more convenient time. Suggest at least 3 hours to fully enjoy everything this fantastic place has to offer. Fridays from November to April from 4-8 pm are free of charge and some Fridays also offer free music which was wonderful accompaniment to viewing the beautiful artwork.
  • It is a most wonderful place if you like Tiffany stained glass. The beauty and creativity of the art of stained glass is absolutely incredible. The only thing to be aware of is that sent it is all stained glass it's not really kid-friendly under the ages of 10. But it is incredibly beautiful.
  • Wonderful museum in the heart of Winter Park. A visual delight for a measure of its size. They often have events and free days making for a nice opportunity to visit. Great for a date night. Check out the lovely gift shop too.
