About The Lightner Museum, St Augustine

Hotel Alcazar was built in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style architecture to provide luxury and comfort to wealthy patrons vacationing. Railroad magnate Henry M. Flagler commissioned architects Carrere and Hastings to give it a touch of splendour and glamour which summed up the atmosphere in this hotel. The hotel boasted a steam room, massage parlour, sulphur baths, gymnasium, a three-storey ballroom, and the world's largest indoor swimming pool. However in 1932 the hotel closed down, and in 1948 it was open to the public as the Lightner Museum.

Chicago publisher, Otto C. Lightner, purchased the building to house his extensive collection of Victoriana in 1946 and opened the museum two years later. He gave the museum to the city of St. Augustine. The building is an attraction in itself, highlighting the open courtyard with palm trees, and a stone arch bridge over a fishpond. On display at the Lightner Museum are artefacts from the 19th century. There are three floors to the museum, all of which are filled with relics of America’s Gilded Age.

Costumes, furnishings, mechanical musical instruments all give you a glimpse into the daily life of that era. And to represent this are collections of items like lighters, pipes, and glasses. Paintings from around the world are all exhibited. Each room is restored to its inventive splendour so guests can feel like they are walking back in time. The Museum is housed in the former health facilities of the hotel, including the spa and Turkish bath, and in its three-storey ballroom.

The museum's first floor houses a Victorian village, with shop fronts demonstrating emporia selling period wares, a Victorian Science and Industry Room exhibits shells, rocks, minerals, and Native American articles in beautiful turn of the 20th century cases, as well as stuffed birds, a small Egyptian mummy, model steam engines, elaborate examples of Victorian glassblowing, golden elephant bearing the world on its back, and a shrunken head. The Music Room, filled with mechanized musical instruments—including player pianos, reproducing pianos, orchestras, and others—dating from the 1870s through the 1920s.

The second floor contains examples of cut glass, Victorian art glass and stained glass work of Louis Comfort Tiffany's studio. The third floor, in the ballroom's upper balcony, exhibits paintings, sculpture, and furniture, include a Grande escritoire created for Louis Bonaparte, King of Holland, in the period 1806-1810.

The Lightner Museum is located in the historic downtown district of St. Augustine across from Flagler College.

  • Took several outstanding tours. The history of the building was appreciated and seeing the original staff rooms was an unexpected bonus. The tour guide was excellent. She showed true excitement and knowledge. We also went to the "Dressing Dowton" tour which was wonderfully set up. Kudos to all.

  • Excellent!! Loved it..When I went they also had a showing of the Downton Abbey TV show wardrobe worn on the show displayed on mannequins along side his collections. Very impressive. The collection that this man collected in his lifetime is beyond belief. Amazing how one person could this. Will love to go back.

  • The tour is well worth the money. A display of antique musical players/instruments is Best seen with one of the guides who shows /plays about 6 of them and tells you the story. The Downton Abby display was also there when we went which was a unique display. We knew nothing about the show before we arrived.

  • A rare museum. Part art museum, part antique mall, part history museum, part collectors paradise. A refreshing respite from over stuffy and snobby “world class” museums, this museum offers the funk, fuzz, weirdness and wonder that a truly interesting institution can offer. I’m thankful for those in charge for their creativity, care, insight, and ability to offer the public a truly interesting experience. And by the way, it is free to residents of St. Augustine.

  • Such amazing history and interesting collections. I even hired an artist in the hallway for snipped paper silhouette of my daughter - helping support local artists. Lovely time!
