My husband and I were on a staycation in the Palm Beach area and drove by the museum not knowing what it was. We decided to stop because it was just such a beautiful, grandiose home and find out what it was all about. Once we found out that it was the home of Henry Flagler we decided to take... More

The Flagler Museum - Whitehall - is worth the entry fee. Once you arrive they provide you with an audio tour device and map to follow through the houses many rooms and out building. The at your own pace tour allows you to spend time in the different areas based on your interest. The house has been put back in... More

This home gives a little flavor of the opulence of a buy gone era. What would be considered a mansion by today's standards was a little vacation get away built for the wife of one of the original Standard Oil founders, Henry Flagler. The tour was interesting and we learned a little about the history of the development of the... More

For a glimpse into the history of the area and development of Florida in general (through the eyes of the rich) this is quite a spot. We spent a couple of hours, and really enjoyed the docent-led tour of the main floor of the mansion. The tour is included as part of the admission and I always prefer a tour... More

Dropped by the Museum to see briefly what the location was about. Ended up spending 3 hours here enjoying the history and sights.

I leaned lots of new things from the museum about the history of Florida! Make sure to get the audio tour for the full experience. The back patio offers incredible views of the intracoastal!

You must take the tour to find out all the secrets, such as the steel frame of the house and the artfully painted plaster ceilings etc. Having experienced the real thing at Vizcaya, I was less than impressed with the Flagler. Also, it is jarring to move from period to period and country to country as you walk through the... More

This is a great experience. Flagler truly changed the eastern coast of Florida like Vandebilt and others. This museum is time well spent.

It was one of the most beautiful historical homes I have visited. Many historical artifacts displayed wonderfully. The tour guide was great. The Flagger railroad cars wonderful. I can't say enough about this museum.

Have you ever wonder how the other half lives? Well this is the perfect home and museum to get that education. This museum is a fine example of old world opulence. The building itself is stunning the furniture outstanding and the venue itself beautiful in every way. It's a must see for anyone visiting. Enjoy!
