This was an unexpected little gem. The grounds are lovely, with sculptures by the artist, Albin Polasek on the grounds. There are also sculptures by other artists as well. Make sure you take the tour of the home. You learn so much about the artist and his work it really makes the artist come alive. Worth a visit.

Wonderful setting on lake Osceola gorgeous gardens, chapel with crayon drawings by the artist, house, sculpture. Our docent, ms hays, was excellent. The serenity of the garden and setting on the lake so strongly contrast with the traffic and outside hubbub.

Well worth a visit. From the sculpture garden, to the historic home, to the "slice of local history" stories offered by the docents on the tours, this is an outstanding attraction.

Had a great day going through this museum and the sculpture gardens. The place was bright, clean and the staff was exceptional. When in Central Florida it is one Museum you need to take time to visit. Just perfect>
