Overview
More
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, the Museum offers an intimate and unique experience in Winter Park. Among the more than 5,500 works ranging from antiquity to contemporary–2% of which is on view at any given time–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 at Rollins a few blocks from campus. As an educational unit of Rollins, we strive to engage visitors of all ages with our collection and to share our innovative exhibitions, which feature a selection of works from the early Renaissance to cutting-edge contemporary. As exhibitions change seasonally, visitors are encouraged to view the website prior to visiting.

This was a nice place. The paintings were well displayed and lit. Good descriptions about each. We went during a time period when the exhibit was free. Find out when by visiting the website

I came to see the Towards Impressionism exhibition with friends. Not disappointed 45 paintings in all, lots of Corot, lots of Viridian! Great cows! Hard parking tho, parking a quarter of a mile away. Minimal handicap parking. Better advertising was needed. A first class museum.

Great small, yet nicely curated collection right on the Rollins campus. Nice to grab lunch then walk around campus and check out the museum. Some of the video exhibits were a little weak, but the statues, reliefs, and paintings were modern and exciting. Definitely worth...More
