Things to do on Winter Park holidays
Winter Park museums
The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art
This museum is home to the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by the American artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933). Among the jewels in the collection are the restored Byzantine-Romanesque chapel interior that Tiffany designed for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, and a wing showcasing art and architectural objects from Laurelton Hall, Tiffany’s celebrated Long Island home.
The recently restored Daffodil Terrace is a design lover’s dream with its leaded-glass windows and iconic Tiffany lamps among the featured installations. You can also find American pottery, furnishings and late 19th- and early 20th-century American painting and graphics.
Today, the town is a 20-acre historic district and is home to The Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts, which features the works of emerging and acclaimed artists of African descent. There’s also The Zora Neale Hurston Trail, which takes in 16 historic sites. A walking and driving tour brochure is available at the museum.
The Hannibal Square Heritage Center
This award-winning exhibition pays tribute to Winter Park’s African American community. The photographic collection dates back to the 1880s and is accompanied by oral histories told by current residents. The collection is accompanied by a timeline of local and national events from before the civil war through to the election of President Barack Obama.
