Orlando City Hall

We know, not everyone would consider the Orlando City Hall an attraction! Yet, if you have some time in Orlando, and you have some wheels to get you to downtown Orlando, among the many sites and activities, the art galleries at city hall are worth taking in.

For much of the first part of 2021, the Orlando City Hall was closed, and workers did so from away. Now it’s open both for employees to work there, and for visitors to view.

As of early November 2021 visitors that have had two vaccinations are not required to mask up when visiting.  The official website states “… a result of the downward trend in positive cases, vaccination percentages and the lifting of Orange County’s local state of emergency, effective Monday, November 1, fully-vaccinated employees and visitors to City of Orlando facilities are no longer required to wear a face covering, absent any special circumstances. Those who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to wear a face covering. “

The grounds outside Orlando City Hall are very welcoming, with lots of places to sit (and many folks do), a courtyard, flowing fountains, and gorgeous flowers to feast the eyes of anyone from the North that has been starved for green vegetation and flower color in their winter drabbed landscape at home.

Inside Orlando City Hall


There is a gallery right on the main floor of the Orlando City Hall. There is no charge to visit.

Buried way in the back on the ground floor too is an inside access to an excellent eatery. If you are visiting the Orlando City Hall near lunch time, the food looks great, the prices are very good, and you can sit inside looking into the courtyard, or sit outside, as the glorious Orlando winter weather permits, eat your lunch, and rock your cares away on one of the available courtyard rocking chairs!

To get past the first floor, to visit the galleries on the third and second floors (you typically go to the third floor first and wander down the broad staircase to the second floor) you will need to sign into the automated security kiosk. A drivers license is useful. The system will print you a pass allowing you to get past security and visit the gallery on the third and second floors.

Outside Orlando City Hall

Downtown Orlando Florida is very nice, and, when you go make sure you get over to the Church Street Station only a couple of blocks from City Hall. Church Street Station is filled with boutiques, other interesting shops, and restaurants helping make your visit to downtown Orlando even more enjoyable.
