Museums: Lovers of both the art and outdoors will delight in the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Garden, home to more than 200 works by the Czech-born sculptor. Located in the beautiful Winter Park home that Polasek enjoyed upon retirement, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Docent-led tours of the museum and chapel are available and informative, and its grounds often attract repeat visitors looking for a quiet place to reflect and enjoy the home's rolling grounds. The gardens are comprised of three colorful acres dotted with works of art, 50 by Polasek and a number by several other 20th Century sculptors.
