Albin Polasek Museum And Sculpture Gardens

In 1961, the Albin Polasek Foundation was founded by the sculptor and his wife, and at that time, the Residence, Galleries, Chapel and Gardens were opened to the public as a museum. Because it was originally intended as a simple residence, the property is different from the standard Florida estate. The residence is not lavish, as Polasek had a deep appreciation for an uncomplicated aesthetic. Similarly, the gardens are quiet and subdued, utilizing gardening art in classic form.
