The Charles Hosmer - Morse Museum of American Art

Welcome to the Morse

The Morse Museum houses the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933), including the artist and designer’s jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded-glass lamps and windows; his chapel interior from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago; and art and architectural objects from his Long Island country estate, Laurelton Hall. The Museum’s holdings also include American art pottery, late 19th- and early 20th-century American painting, graphics, and decorative art.

Temporary Museum Closure

The Museum will be temporarily closed in response to COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. This closure of the galleries will assist community efforts to thwart the virus and will allow us to protect visitors and staff. The closure will be reviewed in the days ahead, and we look to reopen the Museum as soon as public safety can be assured.

Introductory Films

Our 14-minute orientation film, A Legacy for the Community, and 10-minute film, The Tiffany Chapel—A Masterpiece Rediscovered, are now available for viewing online.
