If you want to add a bit of culture to your long Independence Day weekend, save some energy on July 4 and circle July 5 in your Moleskine day planner. Because on that day, Winter Park's Morse Museum is offering free admission and will be showing off some previously unseen artifacts.

Now it might be no Red, Hot & Boom, but on July 5 only, visitors to the museum can peer at a very topical 1798 cream jug by Paul "The British Are Coming!" Revere (silversmith by day, patriot by night), and a baseball signed by the game's holy trinity: Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Lou Gehrig.

And make sure to scope out new exhibits Watercolors From Louis Comfort Tiffany’s “Little Arcadia” and the Chinese Blue and White Porcelain vignette.

Morse is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on July 5. No reservations are needed, but admission is contingent on capacity limits. Mask-wearing is requested from visitors.
