Immerse yourself in America's Gilded Age at Lightner Museum, where you'll be surrounded by Victorian-era antiquities. These collections are inside the Spanish Renaissance Revival-style Hotel Alcazar, originally built it 1887 and on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum, with three stories of artifacts from 19th-century life, is perhaps most well-known for its stained-glass works by Louis Comfort Tiffany and its Music Room, which is filled with instruments from the turn of the 20th century. Other exhibits include its first-floor Victorian village re-creation. For Lightner Museum and beyond, use our St. Augustine road trip planning tool to get the most from your St. Augustine vacation.

  • It took a little over two hours to wander through. There are three floors to explore. Each floor has rooms filled with historic treasures. The staff was helpful filling in interesting facts. The cost was reasonable, $17 for an adult ticket. There is a restaurant at the bottom and the music and tasty smells followed me everywhere.
  • They have a little bit of everything! Lots of interesting exhibits. Worth the visit. Gorgeous building and staff is very nice and helpful. Loved the jazz music downstairs. Really set the mood. Wished I had come during lunch to eat at the very cool cafe.
