Don’t need to add to the existing reviews except to say this is a beautiful museum and the lecture in the House was given by a charming woman who exudes enthusiasm. Well worth the 10.00 each.

Stopped in to visit the Albin Polasek Museum. A must do in Winter Park. A real gem with a great friendly, informative staff. Make sure you do the guided tour as is very informative. Take the time to walk the grounds and enjoy the sculptures.

I was in high school in Longwood, FL, up the street from where Albin Polasek then lived. After he died, his home became a museum and I've driven by it with some curiosity for many years, wondering what it was. Had a free afternoon recently...More

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."
