We briefly joined the 2 pm docent tour and enjoyed the broad perspective the docent presented....of the significance of the "gilded age" in America, and the desire of the newly moneyed of America to present an aura of over-the-top European/French "sophistication", by employing French design and architecture in their homes.
(Good background information for The Gilded Age" series on TV, too ;-)

We enjoyed seeing the museum, and giving it consideration in light of the complex life of Henry Flagler, who was married 3 times, lost 2 children, but was instrumental in the development of the state of Florida and the railroad industry there.

It's unfortunate that this museum and it's many supporters and benefactors, sitting in one of the wealthiest communities in the nation, elects NOT to offer discounts for students, military families, or senior citizens, Odd considering that museums, at their very best, aim to educate and widen citizens understanding of history, and do so when access is increased for all who might be interested.

My visit would have been nicer had I been able to visit on a nice day (when half of West Palm' Beach's population wasn't seeking refuge from the pouring rain) but that was no fault of the museum, which was once the home of Henry Morrison Flagler before being expanded into 9and eventually downsized from) a hotel. Throughout the first two floors are a stunning look into opulence most can only dream of, and a bonus is a restored rail car in a building adjacent to the main dwelling. History lovers will no doubt appreciate this one.

My husband and I enjoyed the guided tour that started at 11. The docent was quite knowledgeable and shared lots of info in the house and Flagler and his family. I especially enjoyed being able to go in the rail car that he and is wife rode in to go to Key West for the first time.

Be ready to pay $26.00 to get in. Parking is pretty good they have 2 lots. They give you a radio to listen to a speech about every room on your self-guided tour. The rooms are done up well and you are given unlimited time to walk around. Very ornate trim and designs. Steps involved but there are elevators. Best part was the train Flagler owned, not to be missed.The whole place is nicely done. Needs to be half of what you pay so more people could enjoy.

Interesting place to visit with a lovely view of the water, cafe and shop. The house itself has interesting information about the history. Easy parking outside.

I was so excited to go to Railcar91 to celebrate my aunts 80th birthday. When we arrived we were impressed with the room with the water view. The servers looked very busy and there were only 2 people serving and waiting. We got the lemonade and tea but had no choice for any other beverage or kind of tea. A 2 tier platter was dropped in front of us with very basic, simple, soggy, yet dry sandwiches. Nothing special at all. The scones were not warm and were dry and dense. We were given 1 small dish of cream, lemon and jam, and I had to get up and ask for more. It was fair too. We ran out of the tea and had to get up again to get more. Nobody came by to check on us. The chocolate brownie was good but the mini mini eclair was store bought - maybe frozen? All in all we were disappointed in this high tea experience.

Great experience. Beautiful, well-preserved home. Well worth a visit.
Docent guided tours, or self-guided---whatever you prefer.

Afternoon tea is a great idea particularly for museums where on site catering isn’t a part of the set up.

I paid $66 per head, $40 for the afternoon tea, and $26 for the museum entrance.

Afternoon Tea was full of potential. The conservatory in which Flagler’s private Rail Car is a perfect setting, has perfect views, the tables are beautifully set with linen and bespoke bone China.

I could tell the staff really made an effort to make the day special and this was evidenced by people dressing up obviously using this location for special celebrations.

Because Flagler Museum so nearly got their Afternoon Tea so very right, it was all the more disappointing that this afternoon tea was not well executed.

I booked online the day prior; fortunately I had my confirmation with me, because the restaurant lost my reservation.

It appeared there was some sort of manual process whereby the restaurant manager had to print out each reservation, a huge waste of paper and printing costs but also something which fell down when the restaurant manager wasn’t on duty that particular day. Everyone on duty was helpful, despite that.

A number of reservations were affected in this way, requiring the staff to rush round and set up at least five additional tables, while also no causing trouble in the kitchen who were required to create considerably larger number of sandwiches et cetera from scratch than might otherwise have been expected. Notwithstanding the lost reservation, the team rushed anround and managed this with the minimum of fuss.

Reservations can either be made for 1145am or 1:30 pm. This means that everybody arrives in one go, and seating up to 50 people in one session caused enormous strain on the two hardworking waiting staff; it would be far better to spread people out in fifteen minute timeslots during the course of the afternoon.

Spreading out dining times would allow reduced staffing, and improve the individual service focus making the whole experience more relaxed for everyone and also align with peoples individual schedules so it seems strange to just stick to these two dining times. I hope the Museum might consider this feedback.

Having waited standing by the desk for 10 minutes for our table to be set up without being offered any refreshment (!), We then waited a further 30mins for Tea to be served.

Delicious pink lemonade is offered and although I suspected it might actually be sugar-free, when we asked if a sugar-free option was available there was none on offer. I do understand that the museum is not a catering establishment, but with many people suffering from diabetes, or simply wishing to reduce sugar, I do think this should be something the museum could consider as an easy option.

Having recently returned from Sri Lanka, I am very aware of the need for tea to be fresh and well stored; the museum goes to Great lengths to serve a specific “whitehall blend” tea which is somewhat underpowered, but also tasted stale.
Obviously, the taste of tea is an individual thing but I suspect fully boiling water might not have been used, the tea might have been improperly stored, and once water added, left standing around before being served to us.

We were both famished by the time the beautifully served layered tea plate arrived at our table; in most hotels, substantial tea sandwiches cut lengthways are traditional, but in overthinking the presentation, the museum served tiny sandwiches which were more like canapés. The sweet offering was not much better, and though what appeared to be homemade chocolate brownie cake was rich and delicious, expensive macarons were tasty but unnecessary, no doubt reducing the budget for other items which included what appeared to be leftover breakfast Danish treats and an abomination of scones baked flat with blueberries (!) which resembled a college sophomore cooking lesson gone wrong!

Keep it simple with properly baked scones from an English recipe, high-quality fruit heavy jam (the one used appeared to be very gelatin heavy, and wasn’t strawberry) and a large cake from which a slice can be cut according to each persons taste.

I won’t even begin to describe the horror of the supposedly clotted cream, but I do recognise that it is difficult to procure such things in the USA.

This sort of thing is relatively easy to get right, and asking even one of the many British people who live in the vicinity how to do this well would quickly have Ameliorated the offering to one which was more aligned with a traditional British afternoon tea.

A few small changes would easily reduce costs, increase customers’ enjoyment of the experience and make the whole thing simpler for the museum to administrate.

It is a shame that the museum has decided to simply “muddle through“ rather than seek the expertise of people all around them to ensure a genuinely top-notch offering was put in front of patrons.

Very nice house with lots to see and also a great and enjoyble garden. We were lucky to go with a guided tour of the house (it's included in ticket price) and find out many interesting things about the house and its former owner.

Absolutely loved this place!! This is Florida history encapsulated, because Henry M. Flagler is himself so inherent to Florida history. Seeing his possessions & his actual Palm Beach residence taught me a lot about the extremely wealthy of America's "gilded age" - both their day-to-day lives & the social responsibility inherent to such wealth at that time in our history. While I was already somewhat familiar with Flagler, reading the exhibits on Flagler's life taught me a lot about why he did the things he did & what he hoped to accomplish in doing them, particularly here in Florida. I learned that at the time, Mrs. Flagler's strand of pearls were more valuable than if they had been a strand of diamonds, & that because of the difficulty in mining, aluminum was more valuable than gold. The self-guided audio tour was perfect for our group of friends, as we each lingered in areas of particular interest without delaying the others. I learned from a different source that Flagler died in this home from injuries received in a fall down the stairs. That is glaringly omitted from the tour here, & I wish at least a little information about his death at this very location had been included on this tour. Although there's not much to it, I thoroughly enjoyed walking through his personal railcar. I highly recommend this museum for anyone interested in American history in general & Florida history in particular. (Hint: the tour continues outside, so don't return your audio device too soon)
