This was an unplanned visit until shortly before we chose to go. I've been to St. Augustine to learn about Henry Flagler and just before arriving in Palm Beach we learned about him and his railroad while visiting Key West, so visiting this museum made sense. We arrived shortly before the 12:30pm docent led tour which added much to our... More

When visiting the West Palm Beach area this Museum is a must! The home itself is stunning! The gardens and lawn beautifully manicured. Interior furnishings and architecture is exquisite! I recommend the tour on head set which is included in the price of admission. Make sure you explore the small courtyards accessible through the house. Fountains and lovely floral gardens... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Flagler Museum. Truly amazing to tour the various downstairs spaces, especially the Ballroom, which had painting and architectural details that are stunning. We also particularly liked touring the Flagler private railroad car, which is also part of the museum. Finally, we loved walking around the spectacular grounds which are impeccably... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. Especially if you've never visited PB before. You get a great sense of perspective about the town's roots and heritage through seeing this wonderful home.

Beautiful mansion, gardens and spectacular water views. So if you're a history buff or enjoy architecture and design, this is a must do. You'll love being able to walk through their rail car. They offer audio equipment at no additional charge so you can have the feeling of a guided tour without the crowd of a tour. Fascinating family story... More

The flagler museum is a time warp yo the guilded age of palm beach society. The flagler house is an interesting tour. This post is to review the tea room experience. As always make the last reservation to avoid the crowds. Flagler tea society serves up their own blend of tea accompanied by a swirling tray of finger sandwiches and... More

Opulent, if ostentatious, lifestyle for the Flaglers. But his is the interesting story of John D. Rockefeller's brilliant partner. He took his millions made at Standard Oil and put it into Florida real estate. His last wife, for whom he built this mansion, has her own story. Death under mysterious circumstances. Google Mary Lily Kenan Flagler for more detail. The... More

The Flagler Museum / Mansion is amazing. First, I've never been in an ALL marble house much less one of this size. Secondly, the art and the architecture are intricately interwoven - the effect is spectacular. Third, everything in South Florida (well really from Saint Augustine south) is named "Flager something" and to learn about the man, his ambitions and... More
