his is a rather small museum that once was the artist's home and garden. There are a number of the statues outside in the garden next to the lake. Some are quite large and of a religious theme such as the Christ on the cross. a great place to visit on a hot summer day.

Staff was very friendly - Wonderful works and garden. Did not know of Albin Polasek before trip. Turns out he was from Prague and had seen his work there. Small world!

Albin Polasek was a prolific artist. The staff are experts at the history and timeline of the artist. Make sure you note the hours of operation when you plan your visit.

Artist home and studio turned into museum. Good presentation of artist, his artistic concept, and many of his works. Beautiful sculpture garden display his large works. Had a temporary exhibit of puppets that was good.
