“Best of the Beaux Arts World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

A visit back in time to Beaux Arts Palm Beach...touches of Versaille, European art, fabulous architectural elements. Take advantage of a docent led tour and learn the history of this amazing structure and the Rennaisance man who built it. What a venue for a wedding or party if you have oodles of money....The $18 adult admission is worth it. Make sure to check out the beautiful glass house that houses Mr. Flagler's elegant train car!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you enjoy this type of museum, you will love this one. It takes about 2 hours and has wonderful art and furniture with great historical relevance. A little pricey, about $18, but well worth it.

“Tea and a tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Enjoyed tea in the pavilion adjacent to the museum, it has a great view of the waterway. We then toured the museum. There is a docent led tour on the first floor and then guests are free to wander on their own on the second floor. The docent talked about the life of Henry Flagler, the well known developer of the Flagler museum (which was built as his personal residence) as well as commercial buildings in Florida. It's always an interesting place to take out of town guests.

“An interesting view of the 1% of days gone by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Ths museum provided a very good perspective of what life was like for the socialites of the turn of the 20th century. Mr. Flagler and his wife would spend 8-10 weeks a year in this mansion on Lake Worth every year, and it is a property that includes 'amenities' such as a Drawing Room, Breakfast Room, Billiard Room, and numerous rooms for the live-in help. As the other reviewers mentioned, it's a good couple hour activity to learn about some of the story of how South Florida came to be what it is today. Mr. Flagler basically represents how folks from the New England area first ended up in the south of Florida. Be ready to pay $18/pp for admission, but it's a very impressive exhibit, and it's evident that lots of time and effort has been out into the mansion as it is today.
