Fla­gler Mu­seum

Com­pleted in 1902, White­hall, Henry Fla­gler’s Palm Beach es­tate, is a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark open to the pub­lic as the Fla­gler Mu­seum. This fas­ci­nat­ing 55-room man­sion ex­em­pli­fies the opu­lence and grandeur of the Gilded Age. A beau­ti­ful place then, and just as mag­nif­i­cent now, high­lights in­clude Mar­ble Hall, an im­i­ta­tion of a Ro­man villa’s atrium; the Louis XIV Mu­sic Room; the Ro­coco-style mas­ter suite; Fla­gler’s rail­car and the Café des Beaux-Arts with spec­tac­u­lar panoramic views of Lake Worth and the West Palm Beach sky­line.
