The museum showcases how wealthy those who lived in and visited the area during The Guilded Age were. Eating in the pool was a really nice experience as we wondered who descended the stairs "back in the day."

The Lightner Museum is a former hotel built by Henry Flagler, now housing some of the most incredible treasures! It is amazing that he built this hotel as a "playground" for his guests at his fanicier hotel across the street (now Flagler College.) The current...More

Such a unique museum with collections of everything you can imagine. Set inside a beautiful building. This was a perfect rainy day activity.

There are so many different items here, it's hard to explain. From Tiffany glass to stuffed lions, and everything in between. At first, it's disconcerting, but in the end, really kinda cool. I do wish the items had better descriptions... many objects were on display,...More

The museum is filled with beautiful antiques, but it’s kind of boring. It’s cool to see the old Alcazar Hotel, but the displays were only okay.

It lived up to the hype and the one thing I would say tourists should make a point to visit. My 6 and 10 year old were free and given a scavenger hunt which buys some time for parents to enjoy some of the exhibits....More

Everytime we visit St. Augustine we like to visit the Lightner Museum to check out antique shops and take pictures of the Koi fish in the court yard.

The store is self-guiding. There are steps as well as elevators to get around. Our favorite part of the tour was the music box demonstration and history that the guide provided. We saw lots of interesting things such as a huge dollhouse and dolls and...More

My husband and I visited during a 2 week holiday in Orlando. Although there was lots of glass and china items, it wasn’t really ‘our cup of tea’. It wouldn’t have been as bad if we hadn’t paid $15 each to get in, as we...More

Good afternoon! If you attend the music box presentation, it is approximately 45 minutes. You could easily spend 3 hours there looking at all the collections and seeing the music boxes. We did the 11am music box... More

My kids loved it! I have three girls 9, 11 and 14. They all thought it was pretty cool. It's really an eclectic collection. I think much younger than 9, might not be into it though.
