Very interesting. Used the handheld tour guide so we could go at our own pace. Especially loved the lace exhibit and the artwork.

Taking the tour was so worth it. I don't usually like to have a guide but I was part of a group so I went. I have lived in Florida for 25+ years and I learned so much about Florida I never knew. The tour was short but informative and then we had lots of time to explore on our... More

A really well preserved house that is worth a visit. Try to join the one of the tours given daily. The guides are very approachable and have lots of stories to tell about the place.

We learned so much from our guide in the museum. The opulence of this place left us with mouths wide open. Henry Flagler led a colored, rich life leaving a wonderful legacy for us all. Thank goodness this place was saved for us to see. Wonderful afternoon of gazing.

Our visit to this museum was the highlight of our Palm Beach get-away. Our volunteer docent, Chyna, knew everything there is to know about this property, it's various owners and intriguing history. We spent over two hours here but if you really want to soak in all the splendid art, furnishings and grounds you could spend much more time. The... More
