Henry Morrison Flagler Museum

1 Whitehall Way

Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, when it  was completed in 1902, the New York Herald proclaimed that Whitehall, Henry Flagler's Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach, was "more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world." Today, Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark and is open to the public as the Flagler Museum, featuring guided tours, changing exhibits, and special programs.


The Mission of the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum is to preserve, research, and interpret Whitehall, its associated collections, and materials related to the life of Henry Morrison Flagler, as unique and important elements of Florida’s history and America’s Gilded Age. We encourage you to review the pages below and discover the Gilded Age (one of the most fascinating times in American History), and the entrepreneur who modernized the business world and developed Florida into a vacation paradise with a strong economic foundation.

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.

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 👍😊

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.

This is a must see if you are in the area. I had no idea that this man did so much for pioneering the American East Coast. Amazing museum! The gift shop staff are great also.

If you enjoy historical or architectural places I'd highly recommend spending an afternoon here. At a leisurely place, I spent three hours here and felt like I saw everything. I highly recommend the iPhone app- the self guided tour on the app was really really good.
