We learned so much from our guide in the museum. The opulence of this place left us with mouths wide open. Henry Flagler led a colored, rich life leaving a wonderful legacy for us all. Thank goodness this place was saved for us to see. Wonderful afternoon of gazing.

Our visit to this museum was the highlight of our Palm Beach get-away. Our volunteer docent, Chyna, knew everything there is to know about this property, it's various owners and intriguing history. We spent over two hours here but if you really want to soak in all the splendid art, furnishings and grounds you could spend much more time. The... More

Tour gives you insight to the Flagler's history and the making of Palm Beach. Unfortunately, going on a rainy day left the mansion very dark inside and was a bit straining on the eyes. Next time I'll go on a sunny day!

Loved the museum. Don't miss the museum book store. Lots of wonderful books and special pieces. Enjoyed High Tea. It was fine but wasn't my all time favorite. The view was fabulous. A great place to pause and reflect.

Toured the museum with a tour guide named China. She knew her stuff and made the history of Whitehall come alive. I would definitely recommend this. A 5000 square feet entry hall is just the beginning.

We took the self guided tour with the audio information vs a guided tour. Our experience at other venues is that one can go at your own pace and cover more aspects that are offered.

My husband and I read the book- "Last Train to Paradise"- which is the historical novel about how Henry Flagler built the train from Jacksonville to Key West FL. This is an amazing story! Worth a read. We were inspired to visit "Whitehall"- Flaglers Home in Palm Beach. It was recently completed renovated and they did an incredible job- we... More

I am a US History teacher and a local; I absolutely love finding gems such as Flagler Museum close to home. This museum is a truly stunning home of Henry Flagler, the railroad giant of FL, that gives you the perfect idea of what life was like for the wealthy during the Gilded Age of American History. I recommend you... More

Attended a wedding at The Flagler Museum in March this year. It was absolutely stunning, surrounded by such elegant and rich history.....and rich in history! An absolute must for travelers and tourists, and anyone living in Florida who has never seen it! Tours available of the mansion which is fascinating and lovely!

One of the most beautiful homes I have had the opportunity to visit...Whitehall is the home that Henry Flagler built for his bride and he spared no expense or detail. You will be amazed at the features and construction of this home. His personal railcar is also on display here at Whitehall. Allow plenty of time to enjoy and explore... More
