No one is going to make a pilgrimage to Orlando for its art, but there are a couple of collections worth spending an afternoon with including the OMA. The museum is in Lochaven Park, which also contains the Orlando Science Center (a good rainy day destination with kids) and the Shakespeare Theater, which mounts some very good productions of the Bard. OMA covers lots of ground; it has an extensive collection of pre-Columbian Meso-American works, 19th century American, African art and a number of challenging contemporary pieces. You’re not going to get lost in a reverie inspired by endless galleries, but if you’re an art fan, the OMA is worth a trip downtown. Closed Mondays and major holidays, admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children 4-17, ages 3 and under free.
