I totally enjoyed this museum. Packed with some really beautiful paintings by some local artist in addition to the numerous pieces of sculptures by the man himself. The tour of his house and chapel was awesome. The gardens are beautiful. Pack a pinic lunch when you go so you can take full advantage of the gardens.

We enjoyed strolling the grounds outside the house and admiring his sculpture art and pretty landscaping. The path is wheel chair friendly. Inside the building, there was an art show of Muslim artists and they were all stunning. We also took the tour of his house and studio which was well worth the hour. We watched an interesting video and then toured his studio home a docent. We spent about two hours total here.

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.
