  • This is a wonderful museum. I saw beautiful art and artifacts from the Charles Morse family living around 1900. There are paper guides for each collection (arranged in different areas) or if you have time, you can take a guided tour. The beauty of the glass made by Tiffany was awesome. This is a quiet sort of museum, nothing really for children specifically, so I wouldn't take young kids. An 8 year old could enjoy it. It is a "look, don't touch" place. They have several security personnel, who are friendly, but clearly there to protect. They have a small gift shop. In our busy "got to be entertained" world, this was a lovely diversion for those who like to read the signs and think about life in a different time. Five stars!
  • The arts in this museum are beautiful. However, if you are BLACK you will get followed around as if you are going to steal something. This short, chubby woman with brunette hair, that is necklength, asked my husband, do you have a ticket to belong in here. I waited to see whether she would ask anyone else, but she didn't. She then stared us down as if we didn't belong. I wouldn't care if this museum didn't have paintings of Jesus in it, who is the epitome of love, but it does. I think it is an insult to have my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, in a museum where there are such racist people working there. After visiting there, it led me to pray for those people so that they can experience the true love of Christ and not to stereotype people just because of the color of their skin.
  • This is absolutely the most wonderful museum! Not too large. Each gallery has a separate brochure which describes each piece. The story about how the works were saved from destruction is fascinating. I was blown away by the chapel. I was unaware of it until I visited here. I've seen many works by Tiffany in other museums, but this collection beats th me all hands down. Highly recommended.
  • The Morse Museum is a TREASURE! It has the stunningly beautiful glass creations of Louis Comfort Tiffany as well as his Chapel. The Laurelton Hall wing is amazing too. The exhibits change often so there is always something new to see. The docent we had for a tour they have every Wednesday morning was wonderful. It's the BEST museum in Central Florida as far as I'm concerned.
  • This was a really cool place! I went with my mother and sister in-law to check it out. If you love Tiffany glass and history this is definitely a place to check out while in Orlando. You walk through and look a exquisite stained glass first. Then you go and check out smaller pieces and vases. Then, there is an entire room that was a church I believe - it was very very cool. In the back you sit under a recreated outdoor porch and you look up and just can't quite believe that these people had this much crazy money. There is a small room where you can read about the family and their history and some of the lavish parties that they used to throw.
