We were not able to get our family of five on one timed reservation, but the receptionist allowed us all to come in together and we were even allowed to come early since we had arrived early. Patrons were mindful of social distancing. The museum has history as well as art of Tiffany. The glass pieces are well presented and stunningly beautiful. Even the grumpy teen boy was mesmerized.

No thanks to Covid, I was the only person in this delightful collection of Tiffany and other Art Nouveau creations for about 30 minutes until two masked couples entered. What a delightful treat for the senses to see the lights, colors, textures and forms of art glass, lamps, jewelry, pottery, paintings, architectural materials-- and an entire chapel! I thought about all the people, humble and lauded, who saw these objects over the years and are now gone from this earth while these treasures continue to enrich ours. There is something special about humans driving us to create, image, construct, and collect, and pass on to another generation. And we like shiny and bright things don't we. There's a ton here so drink up!

We’ve lived in the Orlando area for nearly 17 years and this is our first visit to the Morse Museum. It was midweek and traffic was surprisingly light. We had no problem finding free street parking just down the street from the museum entrance. We had purchased tickets in advance so entering the museum was a “no contact” experience. The Tiffany exhibits were beautiful, the setting cool, quiet, and tranquil. We particularly enjoyed the chapel and the hall of stained glass windows and panels. We spent about an hour and 45 minutes browsing leisurely. Easy to social distance in the various galleries. We learned so much about Louis Comfort Tiffany and developed a new appreciation for his art. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The admission of $5.00 is a bargain. We ended our afternoon with a sun filled stroll down Park Avenue in Winter Park. The Morse Museum is definitely worth a visit.

Stopped by during Saturday afternoon visit to Park Ave, for my annual purchase of Tiffany glass wall calendar. Gift shop open to outside guests with extremely observant covid-19 practices. Guard in white gloves enforces use of hand sanitizer each guest upon entrance via automatic dispenser inside door with appropriate signage. Masks enforced. Museum gallery entrance is buy reservation appointment only, with admission gate side of building.

What an extraordinary experience. The design and layout of this museum for the Tiffany collection is superb! All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. You could tell that they were very excited about the collection and wanted to share it with the visitors. The collection itself was amazing and extensive! For only $6 to get in, it is well worth it and deserves a little extra as a donation. Although it's not off the beaten path I think it is not on the tourist list which makes it a bit of a hidden gem.
