Visit the house of one of Florida's developers. A very rich man with a very expensive house. All the rooms are finely decorated, with original furniture and artistic pieces. Great to understand his part in Florida´s history.

When you're traveling through Palm Beach, Florida treat yourself to a tour of Whitehall, the Flagler Museum. The Docent Tour is the BEST! Our docent was incredibly learned on all things regarding the Flagler history. But, if it doesn't coincide with your schedule at least do the audio tour. The tour is worth EVERY penny...so, buy your ticket and excape... More

This is the fanciest house I have ever toured. I'm glad we joined a docent led tour. We learned about the family, the era, and Florida history and development. There is lots to see if you want to spend awhile, or you can tour and leave. There are great views and you can spend some time just hanging around the... More

I've visited the Flagler several times when in West Palm Beach and I always learn something new about this fascinating man and family. We arrived in time for the free docent-guided tour of the first floor at 11 am and thoroughly enjoyed it. Then, we wandered to the upper floor, train car, and gift shop. Lovely visit to the home...

This is a great way to spend a day. There is an admission fee but tours are free. There are over 70 rooms with period pieces, grand halls, gold accents and beautiful artwork. The gardens and views are beautiful. This beautiful two story mansion gives you a glimpse of how the wealthy aristocrats lived.

We took a docent-led tour (included in the admission) of this beautiful property. Going from room to room was like visiting a palace in Europe, but on a smaller scale (not the size or style of the rooms, just fewer in number). We we were done the two of us agreed that this guy had done it right. Large enough... More

IHistory of Floida and Henry Flagler. This place is elegant! Wonderful memories of this mansion. In the 60's I went to 5 proms that were held in the ballroom. Those memories are the most elegant ones I will ever have.

This is a great day trip if you are in the Miami area. This museum gives you a look into the glided age. It is a beautiful home with many rooms and antiquities. If you have a chance, have tea in their tea room, you won't regret it! It has panoramic views of the lake.

This place is a must see for a visit to Palm Beach. The grounds and building are absolutely beautiful. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable. My 5 and 3 year old boys got a little antsy but my wife and I really enjoyed the visit. I highly recommend as a good way to spend a few hours.
