    Well worth the entrance fee. My favorite is the chandeliers. I go once a year to refresh myself. There's a whole room of handmade lace; quite stunning. The amount of antiques is wonderful.  more »

    Stunning example of gilded age architecture and decor! Don't miss the lace exhibit and go on the free docent guided tour. Very worth while! The docent had been there 25 years! He was a wealth of facts not in the brochure.

    The museum was beautiful inside and out. It took us about an hour to get through with the self guiding tour. Well worth the money spent to get in. The only complaint I had was about the security guard who was extremely unpleasant and is the reason why I would not give this place 5 stars. He followed my sister's and I around and stared us up and down several times making the experience slightly uncomfortable. In addition he was extremely rude to my family while we walked through the self guided tour, telling us to hurry along. Everything else was amazing though. I would recommend visiting.

    Took a friend here & she said she never knew about Henry Flagler & thought it was amazing & said thank you.. I grew up here & our High School had their prom here. I enjoyed coming back to see how lucky we were.. It is an amazing place.

    A beautiful way to spend an afternoon. Everyone should do this at least once. A real window into the past. Be sure to check out the train car in the South outside building.
