Charles Hosmer Morse Museum is home to the world's largest collection of pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany, as well as perfectly-preserved American decorative arts from the 19th and 20th centuries.

    The museum was founded by Jeannette Genius McKean in 1942, who rescued most of these incredible artefacts from the Tiffany estate. In 1995, the museum moved to its current location in beautiful Winter Park, Orlando, after having spent most of its life at Rollins College. The huge museum features an example of every kind of Tiffany, in every medium and in every genre he produced, including jewellery, enamels, mosaics, lamps, furniture, watercolours and blown glass.

    One of the most striking exhibits is the reconstructed remains of Louis Comfort Tiffany's 1893 chapel, made for the World's Columbian Exposition. The chapel measures 39 feet long and 23 feet wide and features mosaics, colourful windows and Byzantine-Romanesque architecture.

    Located in Orlando's historic Winter Park in Downtown Orlando, the museum can be accessed via the SunRail line and offers free parking on Cole and Canton Avenues. Guided tours are also on offer during certain hours and cannot be booked in advance.
