I love the Mennello Museum. It's a very small museum that, along with the Orlando Museum of Art, is seemingly tucked away from the excess of theme park tourism. Part of the museum houses the works of St. Augustine folk artist, Earl Cunningham, many of which are scenes on Florida's waterways painted in bright colors that look almost like Day-Glo... More

We stumbled on to this museum by accident. And boy did we get lucky. Small but well worth the $5.00 ($4 for it's great to be a senior rate). 3 American artists were featured inside the museum: Cunningham, Sorensen & Butterfield. We were not familiar with these American artists but we are now! Loved the sculpture work of Alice Aycock... More

This may be a great "first" art museum visit for children. Because it's small (like their attention spans), the interior visit can be accomplished fairly quickly. They often have hands-on experiences for children (check their schedule for Family Days) and the concept of Folk Art is often easier for children to grasp. A big bonus is the lack of a... More

Very engaging albeit small museum. Outstanding outdoor sculptures and grounds. Very relaxing and beautiful layout. Well worth the $5.00 admission cost. Very warm welcome by the front desk (Beverly is awesome and informative). Nice selection of PopArt and information on the museum's founders. Would like to have viewed more artists but really enjoyed the pieces that were presented.

We visited the Menello to see the exhibition of American Pop Art on loan from the Museum of Modern Art in New York. While limited in scope, it was a treat to see the well known pieces from Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and others. This show runs until Aug. 14, 2016. If you are into American Pop Art,... More

What a beautiful place and parking is next to the museum in a garage. Place was laid out nice for the kids with food and dessert vendors. There were arts and crafts, puppet shows, bounce houses, puzzles and my sons personal favorite were all the drums. We had a great time.

This a great, cute museum with interesting American Art. They have a large holding of Earl Cunningham's works. It's a small two room museum with a nominal entry fee (less than $10, I think). The taxi ride from the convention center was $40. However, it was worth it -- I like supporting community museums and the Orlando Museum of Art... More

It's hard to give a small museum, almost a gallery of Earl Cunningham, five stars. But the Mennello is definitely worth a visit and is very inexpensive due to the gracious endowment of the Mennello family. His works are fascinating and are really worth engaging with and in his unique folk art style. The setting is lovely as well. A... More

The Mennello Museum of American Art could be more aptly titled the Menlo Gallery of American Art .It is a small space in a lovely bucolic setting next to a small lake-- which is actually ideal for the type of art which is displayed. In just three rooms, you can have a small taste of American Art highlighting two or... More

The museum is in a beautiful, bucolic setting with sculpture garden sitting lakeside. There is a permanent collection by Earl Cunningham there which is Primitive Art. However, up until January 3rd, 2016, you can view some of Mary Whyte's work, a watercolorist, who resides in SC. She is an amazing artist, mainly painting people at work or showing them going...
