Owned and operated by the city of Orlando, Mennello Museum of American Art is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. Rich in exhibitions and educational endeavors, the museum has been a part of the community since the fall of 1998. This charming attraction is in a serene setting by Lake Formosa and has a sculpture garden.
Original and Traditional Exhibits

In the permanent exhibits is the largest collection in the world of work from Earl Cunningham, a painter born at the end of the 19th century. Other permanent exhibits include the bronze work of Donald De Lue and cast glass pieces of Duncan McClellan.
