The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art houses the world's most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933).

Highlights include:

  • The restored Byzantine-Romanesque chapel interior Tiffany designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago
  • A wing that showcases the Museum's collection of art and architectural objects from Tiffany's celebrated Long Island home, Laurelton Hall
  • Exhibits of American art pottery, Arts and Crafts furnishings, and late 19th- and early 20th-century American painting and graphics

The Morse was founded by Jeannette Genius McKean (1909-89) in 1942 and named for her industrialist grandfather. Its collection was built over a half-century by Mrs. McKean and her husband, Hugh F. McKean (1908-95), the Museum's director until his death.

Exhibitions in the Museum's galleries are changed regularly to enable the public to see more of the collection.
