The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College is a teaching museum that stimulates transformative encounters with works of art while integrating art learning into daily life for campus and community. Set on the Rollins College campus overlooking beautiful Lake Virginia, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum offers an intimate and unique experience in Winter Park. Among the more than 5,500 works ranging from antiquity to contemporary, we hold the only European Old Masters collection in the Orlando area, a sizable American art collection, and the forward-looking Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art, shown both at the museum and at The Alfond Inn a few blocks from campus. As an educational unit of Rollins College, we are a museum dedicated to teaching through and with art. We strive to engage visitors of all ages with our collection and to share our innovative exhibitions, which change seasonally and feature art for all tastes, from the early Renaissance to cutting-edge contemporary.

Da wife and I strolled over when we were staying at the Alfond Inn (about 1 block away. Interesting thing... the profits from the Alfond go to scholorships for Rollins students.). Beautiful campus but wanted to post to folks that it isn't open on Mondays.More

Did not know what to expect, other than it was a museum in Winter Park on Rollins College campus. Usually it is almost impossible to park on college campuses without a student/faculty sticker, so with some trepidation sought out a space - only to find...More
