I am a New England girl who is well acquainted with the "summer cottages" in Newport Rhode Island. This home has a very different feel about it. Yes it is elegant and incredibly well cared for. I was intrigued by my bathroom stop with the lovely hand towels and perfection of care given to that area of the house. Newport... More

Beautiful home and excellent museum explaining Henry Flagler and his role in developing Florida in the 1880s. The audio tour was excellent and lasted about 1.5 hours. I would do that rather than the docent led tour which had a LOT of people in the group.

Henry Flagler was a visionary and entrepreneur. His influence in developing Florida is seen from St. Augustine to Key West. Whitehall is remarkable. Tours are well organized. We chose the audio tour so we could explore at our pace. We highly recommend visiting this museum and have lunch at the Breakers seafood bar nearby.

If you like history, railroads, or just giant old houses, this one's for you. Audio tour is helpful and you learn a lot about turn-of-the-century gilded age society.

Who says time machines don't exist? This is one of the best museums I have ever been too. It is not exactly a museum but one the homes of the Flagler family built around 1902. The tour lasts about one hour and we were hanging on every word. Don't miss the experience.

Docent guided tour and audio tour are included in the price to visit. Both well done. This is more a home than a museum, with as much original furniture, artwork and ambiance as they are able to re-create. They are always on the hunt for furnishings original to the house. Didn't know that much about Flagler and his contributions to... More

I've lived in South Florida, but never had a hankering to go to the Flagler Museum, but I'm being hosted by someone who had it on her bucket list. Long story, short, we went there today. I don't think we'll have to go again. While the history is interesting, the architecture isn't. It's faux, gilded and reminiscent of costume jewelry.... More
