  • I love this museum. I love that the folks that started this museum saved so much of the history of Tiffany and his work. The chapel is amazing!! A hidden jewel in winter park. The detail and history are breathtaking. It is amazing to think that on a number of occasions the chapel was almost forgotten and left to ruin. I also love that this museum puts out a silver creamer mallee by Paul Revere and a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb every Fourth of July!!
  • Decided to do something different with my kids and found this gem and we were impressed to say the least. Loved it! So much to see, it's definitely a place to visit several times. It's nice that they have a self guided tour and info available for each exhibit. Very affordable, parking is in front of the entrance.
  • The prettiest collection of stained glass that I have ever seen. A Must-see location! This is located on the north of downtown Winter Park and to the west of Lake Osceola. Parking can be found on the street (many places are 3-hour open spots) and in a parking garage just south of the building. The building has many parts to it. You enter through the north door along the west side of N Park Avenue. You pay at the counter and are (at this time) required to wear a mask. General admission is $6/person. It is the best deal in the city for what you can see. There are numerous rooms explaining the various types of art that were explored. There are numerous paintings, sculptures, blown glass, stained glass, furniture, jewelry throughout the museum. There are whole rooms recreated to show the beautiful artwork in its original atmosphere: a chapel, a dining room, etc. It is absolutely beautiful. There are numerous places that show how some of the work was created. Once you are done, you exit through the gift shop which has some wonderful products illustrating some of the artwork. Many of the exhibits have a number that can be accessed through a podcast-like app to give you more data on the item. Be careful to keep the volume down or the museum guards will ask you to lower it. I liked this museum so much I would have given it a 5 but for the fact that they require masks. This is an absolute must-see location that I highly recommend for all my fellow travelers.
  • A real jewel of a Museum. When you think of Orlando, theme parks and tourist shops come to mind, but there is nothing Micky Mouse about this beautiful and elegant museum that is located in Winter Park, FL. It is incredible to think that the largest collection of Tiffany glass is right here. Don't miss a visit to this place. Entry is just $6, and Seniors $5. While there, go and explore the beautiful little town of Winter Park with is just as charming as the museum.
  • This gem in Winter Park houses the largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany's work in the world. The museum also showcases the work of other glass and ceramics artists as well as paintings. There are several examples of Arts and Crafts furnishings and Art Nouveau jewelry and wares. The museum itself is lovely and includes an atrium and several areas to sit and relax, including a reading room with books related to the art! My favorite rooms are the chapel recreating the stunning Tiffany stained glass and mosaic ecclesiastic showcase for the 1893 World's Fair, and the reproduction of Tiffany's study area from Laurelton Hall. The gift shop was also excellent and you may purchase reproductions of Tiffany art and jewelry among many exquisite souvenirs.
