Having been to quite a few historic homes, I can say this is easily one of the best. It's Gilded Age grandeur sets it apart and they actually permit photography inside, so long as you don't use a flash. I was grateful to be able to take some photos of all of the magnificent sights in the museum, as I... More

On our stay in Palm Beach area, Tripadvisor reviews said to go see this museum. Sure glad we did. Just amazing to see this Gilded Age home and all the wealth. Admission of $18 and that includes a self-guided handheld audio tour. They also offer a 'person' guided tour, and that was my only complaint - For those of us... More

Toured this mansion with my husband and adult daughter. What a great time we had. Very interesting to learn the history of Mr. Flagler. The architecture and unique details of the home made for a fantastic tour. Was a great insight into the Gilded Age. There is a train car and greenhouse pavilion/train station out back. You can have Gilded... More

Follow a visit of Keywest and the construction of all of 42 bridges to get to Keywest, it was necessary to visit Mr Flagler house and home and learn more about this great visionary. We did visit this house which was made a museum. This was just fantastic. It is very nice and permits everyone to appreciate and understand the... More

Attending a party here was an evening never forgotten. Watching other guests dressed luxuriously in designer gowns and tuxedos was mind boggling. The mansion is huge and incredibly furnished. We returned a few days after party to walk rooms without partying crowds; It is a place that should not be missed on a visit to PB.

The architecture will blow your mind! The unique details the home shows extraordinary craftsmanship back in the 1800s. Work like this is rarely seen today in homes. Also the history of the home and the former hotel is very interesting. Would be good for families as well!

Yes, it really is that opulent and beautiful! Why would you pay the cost of admission? To learn and experience the reality of Flagler's financial achievement. The first room on the second floor provides oodles of helpful information on the background and character of a very interesting man. Interstingly, Mister Flagler was quite philanthropic. While any character flaws were not... More

Flagler Museum (aka Whitehall) is the red-roofed white mansion of Standard Oil tycoon Henry Flagler who developed Florida tourism, building hotels and his Florida East Coast Railway to transport customers. It is decorated with late 19th century antiques to re-create rooms the wealthy saw on their grand tours of Europe. Adult admission is $18 per person payable at the front... More

liked being able to tour at my own pace. Came to see the RR Business Car in the pavilion outside and enjoyed the whole tour.

We visited particularly to see the exhibit on construction of the Panama Canal and then stayed to tour the whole facility. The exhibit was great and the audio info was very helpful. I thought I knew a lot about the project but I had a lot to learn. Now I look forward to a cruise where I transit the Canal.... More
