Wow place of a true visionary of his age

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!

Our family spent a few days at The Breakers and enjoyed some time visiting the Flagler mansion. A walk back in time with luxury at the turn of the century. I thoroughly had a good time walking through this wonderful home. The architecture is truly amazing and beautiful.

A real eye opener compared to other stately mansions in the state. High ceilings, spacious rooms, decorations in excellent taste. One of the few that doesn't imitate italian villas. Grounds well maintained. Beautiful decor and furnishings. A complete contrast to Vizcaya and Ca d/Zan. Audio self-guided tour available. Wonderful water view on one side.

The estate is fabulous. The grounds are well manicured with a scenic view. The furnishings inside are grandiose. The audio tour allowed us to proceed at our own pace and hear the descriptions of each room clearly. WARNING: Make sure the flash on your camera doesn't accidentally go off because they will track you down and stalk you the rest... More

Over-the-top beauty of a home. Unbelievable that people lived in places like this one. Immaculate grounds and beautiful views. Fascinating glimpse at a by gone age. Quite a lot of artwork, furniture, china, etc. to view. A great history lesson about the people and places of Florida. The railcar and building it are housed in are simply stunning.

I've visited several times, taking my 87 yr old mom this last time. Had to use a wheelchair for her and was very pleased with all the help and hints of the best way to get around. There is a tour guide or you can use the audio version and go at your own pace. I've done both and with... More

If you like historic houses then plan a visit here. This is an amazing house. You can take a longer guided tour or do an audio tour. It includes his personal railcar which is neat. It's worth visiting!

I was pleasantly surprised when we toured this home, it compares to Vanderbilt & Hearst castles only on a smaller scale. The details show the finest of the gilded age. Spectacular summer home of the wealthy. Plan on at least 2 hours to see everything and definitely take advantage of the guided tours. I was able to catch up with... More
