Located a few blocks from campus, The Alfond Inn is a visionary philanthropic boutique hotel whose proceeds help fund student scholarships.  In 1981, the Museum became Florida’s first college museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums (currently the American Alliance of Museums) and continues in 2021 as one of only four AAM-accredited museums in greater Orlando. Museum admission is free for 2021 courtesy of RMA's Director's Circle.
