Excellent informative museum about the life and home of Henry Flagler, and the Gilded Age. Well worth a visit. I would recommend that the museum consider creating a collection of photographs from the period of Palm Beach, St. Augustine and the Flagler family. It could only add depth to an already wonderful museum.

We went here for a wedding and it was amazing the staff was super knowledgeable and they kept the rooms open and gave us information during the wedding reception. I would love a chance to come back and go on a full fledge Flagler Tour.

It is really something when you learn that the house only took 18 months to build over 100 years ago. It takes much longer to build houses now. We really enjoyed the museum and used the audio tour. Very interesting to see how the wealthy lived all those years ago. With a house like that, they only spent 6-7 weeks... More

We so enjoyed the docent tour we took at this museum with Sue, she was witty and so very interesting- sharing her knowledge with us about Henry Flagler and his home. You really get a feel for what Florida was like in the last century and how far it has come. The home is so beautifully restored to its grandeur... More

WOW was the first word out of my mouth. This former winter home, now museum, of Henry Flagler is just stunning. It is a glorious Gilded Age mansion adorned with period furniture, 24K gold trim and exquisite crystal chandeliers. We were fortunate to be there for an organ recital, again, fantastic. The highlight of the visit was walking through the... More

This is a wonderful museum to visit and you must take the tour of the ground floor. The guide was fabulous and very informative and she brought the history of the house and the period it was built in, to life. Well worth a visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Whitehall, the winter home of Henry Flagler, which has become the Flagler Museum. We arrived in time for the last tour of the day (2 pm) and had a very informative guide who took us through the rooms on the main floor. We were then invited to continue our own self-guided tour of the second floor.... More
