I think they could lower the cost due to the fact it is a small place and you can finish looking around inside and out in under an hour.

This was an interesting Museum and Garden. It is in the former house of Albin Polasek. One section and a huge collection of artistic gourds from around the world. The sculpture garden in the back is beautiful with a view of the lake. The other side of the museum showed some of Polasek's possessions and other sculptures.

I could have spent a lot longer here but the other party members went through pretty quickly. I really enjoyed the visiting exhibition as well as the lovely garden which we later viewed from the boat trip on the lake. I enjoyed the Polasek work but expected to see a bit more of it.

The sculptures are very powerful as well as the man himself. The chapel is lovely. I have been here a few times, but always want to come back.

A Pleasant Time at a Fantastic Museum. The Polasek Museum is an amazing Place usually found In NYC, Rome and or Paris. A must stop while visiting Winter Park. Relax and roam the grounds enjoying the beauty and amazing peace found on your stroll. The exhibits inside a a must to take in on your visit.

Hidden away in Winter Park is this lovely property, housing sculptures and paintings of native born Polasek. This hiome was his own, and is a lovely setting for his life's work. The yard, facing the water, is decorated with many of his sculptures. Check out the small chapel, decorated, again, with his art work. There is a short,m formative video... More

The Polasek is a beautifully landscaped property and sculpture garden. I visited in April on a sunny beautiful morning. There was a free artist demonstration in progress under a nice shady tent. This is a place to go to enjoy beauty and peace. I consider it one of the true treasures in Winter Park, FL.

Alban was so very talented. In the yard the gigantic statue of the Sower Is the same as the one on top of a Capitol building. His statue of man carving his own destiny is the same as the one in Brookgreen gardens South Carolina. Love the peace of this place on the lake .
