The Cornell Fine Arts Museum is located on the Winter Park campus of Rollins College and is the only teaching museum in the greater Orlando area. The museum houses more than 5,000 objects ranging from antiquity through contemporary eras, including rare old master paintings and a comprehensive collection of prints, drawings, and photographs. The museum displays temporary exhibitions on a rotating basis along with the permanent collection.

The first purpose-built museum on campus was The Morse Gallery of Art, opened in 1941 and administered by Jeannette Morse Genius (who also provided the funds for the building) and her husband Dr. Hugh McKean, who later became president of Rollins College (1951–69). In 1976 George and Harriet Cornell donated the funds to construct a fine arts complex that would include a new museum: the Cornell Fine Arts Museum opened its doors in 1978, and three years later became Florida’s first college art museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums (today the American Alliance of Museums).
