  • I really enjoyed my visit here. The art is beautiful and they have such a variety of pieces from paintings to sculptures and jewelry. The chapel was amazing despite is modest size and was by far my favorite part about this museum. It's not a large museum but it's small size is deceptive as they had many, many works on display throughout. It's almost maze-like in the amount of halls it has but it creates a quiet, intimate browsing. The two videos that are played were very informative and just the right length to not bore you. For the price, it's definitely worth stopping by.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful to see. Terrific examples of Tiffany glass as well as a smashing experience when they have live music as well. The way that they have displayed information is a bit odd, printed pamphlets rather than placards. A bit frustrating at times but workable. Unique pieces held there and several other wonderful artists as well.
  • Sunday afternoon, at the museum. $6 Seniors. What beautiful art, beautifully displayed, each display area easily explained with pamphlets in each room. Very impressive how the directors of this establishment have preserved the life story of Tiffany. Other art of the time period is also displayed. Thank you to the family for collection and preservation of of our US art history.
  • 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.
