WOW. I have never been an attraction since being a mom where they have not made exceptions to rules for my child. NO STROLLERS, NO BAGS, NO LIQUIDS, NO FOOD. Not fun when you have a three year old. When he was thirsty or hungry we had to go all the way back out to the car and stand around... More

Having known about Henry Flagler and his impact in Florida, it was interesting to view what was valued during the early part of the 20th century, or what was termed " the gilded age". You can tour the house with a "phone-like" device and follow the numbered map. Anyone interested in history of the U.S. should see this and earn... More

We took our four kids on this museum tour - not sure if they'd enjoy it and wow - they totally did! (ages 12, 10, 8 & 7) and they loved looking at this beautiful mansion and hearing the history of the house and family. Well worth a visit!

This was totally worth a trip from any location on the East Coast. Flagler was very influential in the Florida area and it shows from St Augustine to Palm Beach

We have seen a number of mansions that have been turned into museums over the years. This one is well worth seeing. You learn financial history, social mores of the time and something about fine collectible art. It is interesting to us that many people enjoy visiting mansions of deceased rich people Henry Flagler yet, often, those same people today... More

This museum/mansion tour is a very entertaining and instructive activity you should not miss when visiting Palm Beach. The museum is very well maintained. The tour is well organized with the audible tour included in the admission price. I got it and found that it complemented the visit very well. You will learn not only about Flagler himself, but also... More

My friends and I did the self-guided audio tour and learned about the development of Palm Beach and the Flagler family. Well worth the time spent!

This mansion is open to the public. A docent guided tour gave interesting information about Henry Flagler and his family. Just looking at the furnishing and paintings gave a look back in time to another age. There was a tea service available and our group enjoyed it.

Henry Flagler was one of the richest men in America at the height of the Industrialization of America, and his winter home in Palm Beach is the equal of what you might see in Newport Road Island, or the Hurst Castle in California, or maybe even the Biltmore House in Ashville. The rooms are large, and the decorations and furniture... More
