Morse Museum

The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art houses the most comprehensive collection of the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany found anywhere, a major collection of American art pottery and representative collections of late-19th and early-20th century American paintings, graphics and the decorative arts.

Founded by Jeannette Genius McKean in 1942 and named for her industrialist grandfather, its collections were built over a half century by Mrs. McKean and her husband, Hugh F. McKean. In the late 1950s they acquired major windows and architectural elements from Tiffany's fire-ravaged estate on Long Island and later the elements of his 1893 chapel for the World's Columbian Exposition. The complete chapel has been reassembled and is on exhibit at the Morse Museum.

Address: 445 North Park Avenue, Winter Park, Florida 32789
