The Polasek Museum incorporates the sculptors’ home and studio, his work, and a gallery of rotating fine art exhibits. Stroll the peaceful lakefront grounds, come for lectures and enjoy this sublime piece of culture in Winter Park.

This is very interesting. The sculpture garden is so relaxing. I love the Stations of the Cross in the garden. We had a groupon for this and it was well worth every penny.

Our docent was fantastic! We knew almost nothing about the artist, but thanks to the docent we learned so much about who he was by touring his home, and his seeing his work, we now feel like we practically have met Albin Polasek.

Loved this one. The gardens and sculptures are so enjoyable to stroll around. The dock on the lake had amazing views. Wandering around inside they have a good bit of art to look at. Very nice staff and definitely worth a stroll.

Hi Renee, If you head east from the museum (turning left instead of right when you leave), you'll find plenty other restaurant options.

It was $4 for seniors. I believe the admission price is on their website. It's often under "Plan your visit."
