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.

Incredible Docent Tour of Impressionist at the Cornell. Wonderful exhibit, Docents explained so much about Impressionists and the collection. Impressive Collection for a small Museum. Rollins College is a beautiful surroundings on the Lake.

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.
