These rooms are large with marble floors, walls and columns, murals on the ceilings, and heavy gilding. It offers a unique opportunity to learn about Florida from the beginning, when Henry Flagler’s railroads and luxury hotels established tourism and agriculture as the mainstays of the state’s economy.
Allow yourselves up to two hours to tour the property to explore the Museum’s changing exhibition gallery which features temporary exhibits on topics related to Florida history and America’s Gilded Age. There are also permanent exhibits on the history of Henry Flagler’s life and career and the Museum’s extensive lace collection.
You will find world-class exhibitions highlighting art or artists, topics, and issues of the Gilded Age (1865-1929). All exhibitions to The Gallery —located on the second floor of Whitehall— are free with Museum admission.
