Really a beautiful mansion. The upkeep, the whole presentation, makes the visit particularly worthwhile. Great private railway car, and, from the rear of the mansion, great view of the gleaming high rise metropolis across the bay. There is a tea room on the terrace, with...More

Agree with the previous reviewer that this "museum" is hard to find. Most people would enter through the main entrance of the yellow building, since it's labeled "Flagler Station". Nope. That's the entrance to the Cuban art gallery. I'm sure by now the owner of...More

Small building where Flagler had a Railway Station. Two videos playing and numerous pictures with history. Free, 15 minutes to view.

We wanted to see this museum but evidently the streets are under construction so the place is closed. Evidently construction moves slowly so make sure it is open (they answer the phone) before trekking out there.

Simple video and museum on the history of the RR being built to Key West. This was included in our trolly tickets. I don't think we would have paid to see it. However, for being free, it was well worth the stop.
