West Palm Beach History
The Flagler Museum
Bummed out that Downton Abbey has ended? Get your historical fix at the Flagler Museum! With all the grandeur and history of the Abbey, but without the drab English weather, the Flagler Museum is a truly stunning palace that will transport you back in time to the height of the Gilded Age. The mansion was built in 1902 and was originally the private residence of the business tycoon, Henry Flagler. Today it operates as a museum and national landmark that provides guided tours of the stunning architecture seen throughout the home and its sprawling, impeccably maintained property.
Step back in time with this unique attraction where interpreters act out “living history” of life before 1940. The nine-acre park focuses on the years between 1895 and 1940 with replica buildings like school houses and genuine artifacts for your viewing pleasure. Their General Store even has unique historical items for you to purchase and remind you of your visit to the past.
