Free Admission for All Visitors 10 am to 5 pm
On June 5th each year the Flagler Museum celebrates its anniversary by opening to the public free of charge in honor of the Museum's founder, Jean Flagler Matthews.
Whitehall was built by Standard Oil partner Henry Flagler in 1902 adjacent to his hotels. Flagler spent winters in Palm Beach with his wife Mary Lily until his death in 1913. Flagler's youngest granddaughter, Jean Flagler Matthews, rescued the estate from potential demolition and established the Flagler Museum on June 5, 1959.
Self-guide tour brochures will be available for visitors to guide themselves through Whitehall's first and second floors as well as Railcar No. 91 in the Flagler-Kenan Pavilion.
