Flagler Museum

Summer is in full swing and we're all anxious to escape the heat. This month we have just the ticket. Henry Flagler’s estate, originally known as Whitehall, is a magnificent structure that will likely awe all those who visit. Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark now known as the Flagler Museum and offers guided tours and ever changing exhibits. There is really too much to describe in the space available here so we would seriously suggest, for those unfamiliar with this venue, that you visit their website located at www.flaglermuseum.us/ and take the virtual tour.


Yes, this setting will give us an opportunity to move inside but with that comes the accompanying photographic challenge. The luminence levels will be lower and as flash photography and tripods are prohibited at Flagler, it is suggested you bring your fastest lenses. And don't forget to dial up the ISO setting on your camera to compensate for the diminished light.


In addition to flash and tripods, the list of no-no’s includes backpacks, large bags, strollers, and food and beverages. Please take note of and honor these restrictions.


Admission is $18. Free parking is available in front of the museum. A map and directions can be accessed on their website (see above).


Event organizers Irene Hill and Russell Levine will be on hand to greet you in the parking lot between 9:30 and 10:30 am and answer any questions you may have. The museum opens at 10 am.
