  • Winter Park offers wonderful art. This museum as well as Charles Morris Hosmer are gems worth your time. Polasek worked in many different mediums. Enjoy! (PS..We had an evening flight so these two mus...  more »

  • I went in January 2015. I found it well weaker than Louis Comfort Tiffany, the Morse Museum. Has a wide garden with various sculptures and the inner part that contains the collection lacks maintenance. Everything is very old and has strong smell of mildew. I couldn't stand to stay there for a long time. So if you ask my opinion, I would say it's not worth the visit.

  • Really nice place to spend some time. Then winter park is just around the. Inter for a nice lunch and stroll in downtown. Staff at the museum were grand. Well worth the few bucks to get in.
  • Small exhibit. Only 2 indoor rooms. Other house and chapel only able to be seen if no private event and if you catch a docent led tour. We did not catch one. Was told at door that we could see 'entire gardens' even though a wedding was in the house. We were on the dock and were walking back up a pathway and a Polasek staff person woman with a sun umbrella that was working FOR Polasek for the wedding came and yelled at us for crossing the barricade sign (private party). We never crossed a barricade sign. The sign was put up after we already were further down the path and on the dock. We would not have been able to cross the sign with our in laws as they would not be able to climb around it. We told her the sign was not up when we entered that area and she insisted we crossed it and was mad at us. I apologized even though it was not our fault and she continued to act accusatory (so much for getting to see all the gardens like they promised when we paid our $23 to get in.) We walked away and then heard her yelling at another couple who were behind us for the same thing. They told here the sign was not there when they entered the path to the dock either and she did not believe them and was very very rude to them. They were visually very upset by her treatment. Our visit ended abruptly and was no more than 15 minutes long. I would have given the tiny 2 room museum and pretty garden 3 stars if it were not for the staff person ruining our visit. (only 3 stars because of such limitations during weddings, special events and overall size of exhibit.) I also would have appreciated an honest answer about whether we would get to see the entire garden BEFORE I paid the admission for 5 people. I would have come back another day instead of paying for a partial visit. I am a retired museum curator/director and would be appalled if I knew a representative of the museum was treating guests like this. She should be relieved of working with people. First and last visit for us on May 15, 2016.
  • The Capen House is absolutely GORGEOUS! A great venue for weddings and events, the friendly staff will only make it easier.
  • The outside is fun and nice to see
  • A beautiful place to visit and have an elegant event.
