Whitehall was originally the home of Henry Flagler and his third wife, Mary. The 75-room Beaux Arts mansion has an eclectic décor, encompassing an array of styles from Louis XIV to Italian Renaissance, while its architecture was inspired by the palaces of Italy and Spain. It was designed by Carrere and Hastings, who also designed Flagler’s Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine and the main branch of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. You can check out Flagler’s private Railcar #91 in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion on the museum’s South Lawn or sip tea and nibble cucumber sandwiches in the Café Des Beaux Arts (open during the winter/spring season only). Inside, experience the changing exhibits of art related to Florida history and America’s Gilded Age one of three ways: through a narrated audio tour, a self-guided tour with a brochure for your guide, or a docent-led tour that’s given twice daily. Admission is $18 for adults; $10 for ages 13-18; $3 for children 6-12; free for kids 5 and under.
