But, it was a delightful way to spend an afternoon. I took my camera and got some really good train shots. The mansion is huge and lushly decorated and the grounds are very Palm Beach. Florida history is embodied here. Go and learn.

Henry M. Flager is the most important person in the history and making of Florida, and perhaps one of the most important Americans. Don't miss the opportunity to go back in time inside this wonderful white palace, a witness of the Gilded Age. We had a great lady as guide who was an expert on Flagler's life and life in... More

This museum was suggested to me by a relative, and I didn't know what to expect. I was amazed by how beautiful the whole place was! Very opulent. The guided tour consists of the downstairs portion of the building, and afterwards we were allowed to venture upstairs to see the bedrooms. The guided tour was a little long, so wear... More

Lunch is offered during season in the... More

A beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. Definitely worth a visit to see the opulent rooms, and gardens that Flagler had built during his lifetime. Audio guide is definitely worth it if you do not have a good historical understanding of Flagler's significance on Florida's history. Was also very interesting to see his personal rail carriage, lovingly restored and kept immaculately.

Interesting gilded age "cottage" built by Henry Flagler, the father of the Florida East Coast Railroad and most of the resorts anyone ever heard of in Florida. Very good docent conducted a useful guided tour.

Very interesting. Used the handheld tour guide so we could go at our own pace. Especially loved the lace exhibit and the artwork.
