  • A gem. Am a history buff. Their exhibit on the Flagler railroad disaster was incredible. I have been visiting this museum for many years and each time is a new adventure.  more »
  • A 73 room mansion tucked away in Pam beach. Each room was decorated with wallpaper that matched the bedding. Recommend doing the auto tour. The grounds are on the water and the outside seemed like it ...  more »
  • The Flagler name is prominent in many cities and towns from Key West to St. Augustine and beyond and the informative tour of this beautiful mansion was very worthwhile. Our guide was so engaging and k...  more »

  • Incredible museum in Palm Beach. I was aware of Flagler College in St. Augustine but the size and opulence just blew me away. The self-guided tour using the phone and map was easy to follow and very informative. I may come back to do the combined Flagler Museum and Breakers tour. It was that good.
  • Wonderful museum depicting the gilded age. The furniture, lace, decorating are not seen too often. Great history of the railroad. Be sure to go in to the garden home to see the wheelchairs they used and enter the luxury railroad car. I loved the garden of palm trees and walk around outside to enjoy the view.
  • This was a place we quickly visited after moving to Fort Lauderdale! Being originally from the Northeast, we enjoy historical spots. I've been to a lot of the grand estates like the Hearst Castle and the Newport, RI mansions. This place is quite luxurious, but it's a slight step below opulent places like The Breakers. I'm biased though, I'll take New England over Florida any day. :) The exterior of the home was a bit more impressive than the interior if I'm being honest. Still this is worth checking out if you are in the neighborhood and looking for something touristy to do. We enjoyed the guided tour that we went on and it was interesting to learn the history of the Flagler family. I really liked touring the rail card behind the home.
  • Absolutely amazing, educational, informational, and well-preserved piece of American history. Learned so much about the family, Florida, and the US. Plan on spending at least 3-4 hours. We did the audible, self-guided tour and it was perfect for us. Worth every penny and then some. Might actually go back and soak up some more history 👍😊
  • Lovely home and Florida history. Try the afternoon tea. Its fun and has great views. Tickets are $18. Tea is $22. They decorate for the holidays and have special events. Go and see how the wealthy lived in old Florida. You'll be glad you did.
