Charles Hos­mer Morse Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art

Cel­e­brat­ing its 75th an­niver­sary this sea­son, the mu­seum is of­fer­ing free ad­mis­sion for the en­tire month of Fe­bru­ary. The Morse fea­tures the world’s most-com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion by Louis Com­fort Tif­fany, in­clud­ing glass win­dows and lamps, blown glass, pot­tery, jew­elry and paint­ings. Rollins Col­lege alum­nus, Hugh McKean, had been a stu­dent of Tif­fany at his New York es­tate, Lau­rel­ton Hall, in 1930. Af­ter a fire at the es­tate, McKean and his wife, Jean­nette, sal­vaged much of the work and opened a mu­seum in Winter Park. Ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments from Lau­rel­ton Hall and the chapel from the World’s Fair in Chicago are al­ways on view as well as spe­cial ex­hibits for the an­niver­sary. www.morse­mu­seum.org

Plus, there are in­door play ar­eas, live al­li­ga­tors, a di­nosaur ex­hibit and a CineDome with films and laser-light shows. www.osc.org
