This was Henry Flagler's home and it has been kept up magnificently. If you want to experience the history of Palm Beach and the railroads surrounding the area and Mr. Flagler and family in general, this is the place to go. I have been here several times throughout the decades and have never been disappointed. Beautiful grounds outside, also, overlooking... More

The museum is great and its high point must be the private railcar of Mr Flagler - amazing. Then a lunch/snack straight from 1900.

If you ever visited the Rockefeller and the rest of the Newport Mansions, you will appreciate this man's house. Don't miss the train car museum in the back and great intercoastal views. Flagler gets forgotten in the legends of oil barons, but he basically founded modern Florida and also help finance and develop the Panama canal. Museum is a bit... More

I was certainly not expecting what l found once l walked through the doors of this amazing home. As a non American seeing how Henry Flagler and his wife lived in during his last years. The home was way more opulent and had an amazing range of interesting and beautiful pieces that had to be returned to the home after... More

HMF Museum is not a must do when visiting Palm Beach, but it is a quick no-stress way of killing a few hours.

This was the home of Henry Flagler who was a primary force in building southeast Florida. This is a huge,ultra constructed building with very, very impressive materials--the finest marble, woodworking,flooring, ceilings,etc. Room sizes are enormous, rivaling the "cottages" of the ultra rich in Newport, Rhode Island. Views are wonderful as the museum is PALM BEACH WATERFRONT. The icing on the... More

This was a must see for my family and I since we have already visited St. Augustine, Florida last year and saw the church where Mr. Flagler was buried and the hotel he built that is now Flagler college.

The museum is an interesting way to spend an afternoon. The $18. to get in is a small price for all the historicl information attained EAsy to lose sight of the fact it was once the part time (winter) residence of Henry Flagler. Plenty of interesting things to see in a great town full of history

I learned so much about south Florida history at this historic estate. The docent was knowledgeable and thorough, very enjoyable. Great gift shop too!

Henry Flagler's personal winter home. A beautiful historical mansion of the ultra-wealth from the early 1900's. Florida's equivalent of the Newport, RI mansions. Entrance room is 5,000 square feet, all marble.
