Our docent was fantastic! We knew almost nothing about the artist, but thanks to the docent we learned so much about who he was by touring his home, and his seeing his work, we now feel like we practically have met Albin Polasek.

Loved this one. The gardens and sculptures are so enjoyable to stroll around. The dock on the lake had amazing views. Wandering around inside they have a good bit of art to look at. Very nice staff and definitely worth a stroll.

Take the house tour, then stroll the gardens and you will be enthralled with all of the interesting sculptures and the story behind them and the main who made them.
