Best Museum Shop: Cornell Fine Arts Museum

Best Museum Shop
Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park, 407-646-2526, cfam.rollins.edu

The Orlando Science Center just got an impressive remodel and the large, airy Morse Museum shop is a great bet for gift-shopping of the scarf/vase/enameled brooch variety, but we never skip a stop into the tiny nook at Rollins College’s Cornell Fine Arts Museum. It’s not large enough to have much in the way of gift and ornaments, but the walls are stuffed with a serious collection of art books – many, but not all, related to past and current exhibitions – making it our favorite place to search for titles on all types of visual culture. And speaking of gifts, the two volumes of Art for Rollins, which explore the growing Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art, make a thoughtful gift for any local art lover.
