You will find directions, hours of operation, tour/gift shop/restaurant availability & nearby attractions, as well as anecdotes about distinctive & eccentric personalities connected with the world of art. * At the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, search for the "jokes" that Dali hid in his avant-garde paintings * The Charles Homer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park houses the largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany's art permanently assembled anywhere. See his famous jewel-colored, leaded-glass lamps & windows, as well as his lesser-known paintings * At the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, learn how John Ringling picked up circus acts in Europe as he tracked down art by Rubens & Raphael.
