Do not miss this experience - apart from the visual displays of opulence, you also get a great history lesson and an idea of what life was like for the pioneers of the area. Definitely will need a few hours to take in all the museum has to offer. You won't be disappointed.

Great museum at a historic home in the heart of Palm Beach. You'll get an in depth look and understanding of the events and factors that shaped the nascent railroad industry in south east Florida. Well worth the visit.

We attended a wedding here and it is amazing. The grounds and the museum are fantastically groomed. I would highly recommend this as a destination.

There is not much to do in Palm Beach in the way of museums . This is a very interesting historic home of a very well to do , self made , man. Worth spending a couple of hours ... easy parking and a cafe for nice lunch. They do have guided tours at no charge.

Henry M Flagler "discovered" and developed the west coast of Florida from St Augustine to Key West. He built the 70 room Beaux Arts mansion "Whitehall" in Palm Beach.for his wife. Anyone who has any sense of history and culture must visit this treasure. You could easily spend all day there, but 2 or 3 hours will do very nicely.... More

The Flagler Museum is an easy walk from the Breakers and a very nice change of pace. It's mainly a house museum and very well done. It has some wonderful details, like the lace exhibit. Stop to take a close look, it's fascinating really.

The mansion was an awesome experience with an art exhibit at the time we were visiting. I can't recall the artist, but the oil paintings were his interpretation of the various rooms in the mansion.

The house museum was remarkable, showing how the super rich lived and partied in the past. The visit would have been improved with some friendlier staff. There were 2 ticket booths- one for members and one for the public. We had a long line at the public booth, and it would have been so much more efficient if the second... More
