The Orlando Museum of Art is a lakefront property located within the bigger Loch Haven Park. It is adjacent to the Orlando Science Center, the Orlando Fire Museum, and the Mennello Museum of American Art. The museum was established in 1924, featuring different types of art through the various rotating exhibitions. It is conveniently located close to exit 85 of I-4.
Things to Do
- Attend an event - The museum holds various events ranging from crafts, education, talks, book discussions, and of course, various forms of art (manga drawing lessons, and dip dyeing, as an example). Check their website before making plans to visit to make appropriate reservations or plan your trip accordingly.
- Tour through the works of art - With rotating exhibitions, your family will surely find something new every time you visit. There are different types of art in the exhibitions, from videos, to traditional paintings. It may be quite hard to find a particular artist though, as the exhibition is grouped according to the donor of the art, giving it a unique mix of different forms of art you may see per room.
