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.

This is one of my favorite places to visit in St Augustine. If you are a local St John's Counry resident and are looking for something to do on a Sunday, this is free! For the rest of the week it is reasonably priced for the history offered. They even have a scavenger hunt for the kids. We have been a few times and every time we go there is something new! The museum does a lot of interaction with local artist. It's nice to see new things when we go. They also offer a military discount! This is a must see on you trip to St. Augustine!
An absolutely wonderful museum and historic building! In the oldest city of St Augustine built by Henry Flagler as a hotel, visited and occupied by some of the richest people of the gilded age. It still has one of the first indoor pools in a hotel in America. I highly recommend!
