  • Loved our tour here. Nice, in August, when the crowds aren't around... able to stroll around at our leisure. They offer free guided tours, we went at 11am. This place was almost not saved, that...

  • My husband and I loved this home. It is gorgeous. We did a self guided tour and found the brochure very informative. Such a beautiful location on the water. Don’t miss the giant kapok tree out front.

  • Always a great time!! Had not been in 10 years and love that they have acquired old pieces to the museum. Please don’t “rush” through the museum. It’s full of history and wonderful treasures. My only complaint is that I was there at 9:50 waiting for opening. The lady setup the Exit booth instead of the entrance booth. Staff shortage due to ‘Covid’
  • This place is top notch! Do your research about the Flagler's before you come to fully appreciate their legacy in the Gilded Age. There is a small history room in the mansion, but that area was packed! Otherwise, we loved the home. It was $18, including a headset. It's grandeur is out of this world!!!
  • Beautifully preserved example of turn of the century, over the top opulence. Extensive use of marbles for the structure and wood carvings and inlays for the furniture . The Pavilion is a great surprise as well as the finely appointed rail car inside. Our docent was knowledgeable and interactive. The building, its contents, and the docent portrayed the lifestyle of Whitehall when it was the home of newlyweds Henry and Lilly.
  • Visited this past weekend and loved it! I enjoy history and learning about the areas I visit, so it was very interesting to learn more about Mr. Flagler and the impact he made in Florida. The museum is gorgeous! Did you know it was Henry Flagler's gift to his 3rd wife? She just wanted a little cottage by the sea as her wedding present and Mr. Flagler sure delivered! The views, decor, details, artifacts, art and sculptures throught the museum are not only mindblowing but full of history. Parking is free and there is an entrance fee. You can cover the house and grounds in about 2 hours. It is next to the ocean and you can even see Mr. Flagler's first train! Definitely worth it, enjoyable and a history lesson!
  • Admission is a bit pricey, but overall a great experience! The house and all its history is amazing, definitely worth checking out, especially if you are interested in Florida history or the Gilded Age.
