Wells' Built Museum of African American History

Reviewed By Mai H - Worcester, United Kingdom

This small Museum dedicated to the history and importance of African-Americans in world affairs is well worth a visit. We stopped by during a recent trip to Florida and were enthralled by the atmosphere, the well-curated exhibits and the enthusiasm and knowledge of our Tour Guide. The Museum is small and has a modest facade but what it offers is unique and informative. In terms of the exhibits and overall theme of the many displays it is a fascinating glimpse into African-American history and culture. It includes fascinating info displays show-casing the jazz and blues legends who stayed at the hotel during its heyday in the 20th century. There is a good range of information on some of the African-American people who have impacted global politics, right up to President Obama. We were warmly welcomed and will certainly make a return visit next time we're in Florida.

We had a family outing and loved the raptor center. Lots to see , demonstrations, up close viewing of birds by handlers. Good for kids and for all walking abilities. The people working at the center are knowledgeable and friendly. Great morning adventure, easy access, easy parking and family friendly prices. Bathrooms too.

This museum was an unexpected gem! We traveled to Winter Park to see something at Rollins and then had time and looked into this museum. It is a museum of American decorative arts and so there is pottery and other paintings as well (a Singer Sargent, for example) But it is most impressive for its Tiffany collection! From the World’s Fair CHAPEL INTERIOR to the many items, including porticos and jewelry and drawings.
If you have a moment, watch the short video, at the entrance, about the Morses and how this museum came to be. It’s very informative and it makes you appreciate the museum, and its importance, even more.
Free parking and a very reasonable entry price.

We enjoyed our visit to this lovely park and we especially enjoyed touring the historic home there. Our docent guide was very knowledgeable not only about the house but also the history of the area.

We had been for a half day shooping tour and recommend to stay longer. It was not crowded at all and the selection of shops is fantastic. I highly recommend this mall instead of going to the very crowded outlets near the Disney resorts!

Enzian Theatre

Reviewed By Bastmuse - Sarasota

Watched an excellent film, (Paris Can Wait) dined on their vegetarian sandwich. . . (not very interesting--mostly baby spinach and a little melted cheese and some onion on doughy bread) Should have ordered something more easily consumed in the dark, LOL. Service was good, though, and friendly. If I go back soon, will order something else. Enjoyable evening spent in a comfortable setting.

Central Park

Reviewed By mdiv2001 - Orlando, Florida

The park itself is an excellent public space, easily accessed by Sun Rail, bordered by Park Avenue with its shops and restaurants, near the Morse Museum and Rollins College. It is a great setting for festivals and events.

In particular, I can't commend Christmas in the Park highly enough. This event takes place every year on the first Thursday in December. The Bach Festival Choir performs, and the Morse Museum displays several Tiffany stained glass windows that are not viewable by the public the rest of the year. Bring food, drink, and chairs, and come early to get a spot to sit. We plan to make this a new tradition for our family.
