Founded in 1924, the Orlando Museum of Art is a not-for-profit organization with the mission of inspiring creativity, passion, and curiosity by creating a place that connects people with art. It is a beautiful space with temporary exhibitions that rotate year-round and are worth visiting to learn more about the artists and also, to get wonderful pictures ready to post on Instagram.
The organization that founded the museum began in the early 1920s as a small art center with a group of artists who met informally to share thoughts about their work. In the late 1950s, the community raised funds to build a new facility designed by James Gamble Rogers III, which was completed in 1960.
From Contemporary Art to American Art from the 18th century and Art of the Ancient Americas and African Art, the collections are complemented with workshops, art appreciation classes, lectures, seminars and tours for kids. Open from 10 am to 5 pm from Wednesday through Saturday, this place has wonderful pieces of art that will entertain you and your family for an entire day.
Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and member of the North American Reciprocal Museums program, some of the art here has been produced by the most progressive and emerging and mid-career artists living and working in Florida today. Make sure to have enough time to explore every room of this cultural institution.
