A complete guide of theme parks, attractions and museums, like the Morse and the Orlando Science Center.
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
