DealChicken considers himself a real history buff and often wishes he could go back in time. A guardian of artifacts and fashions from the 19th century, The Lightner Museum houses a diverse collection of relics from America’s Gilded Age. In addition to furnishings and mechanical musical instruments, they also have an assortment of Victorian art glass, cut glass and the stained glass work of Louis Comfort Tiffany on display. Whether you’re looking to relive history or simply admire a vast array of antiques, a day spent walking through the Lightner Museum will broaden your knowledge without emptying your pockets.
Located in historic downtown St. Augustine, The Lightner Museum was originally purchased in 1946 by Chicago publisher Otto C. Lightner in order to house his extensive Victoriana collection. Opening as a public museum in 1948, it's the perfect destination for art and history lovers as well as anyone looking to learn more about what daily life was like in the 19th century. A great location to host corporate and special events, their facility can accommodate groups from 50 to 400.
$20 for admission for two to The Lightner Museum in St. Augustine
The Lightner Museum is located in the former Hotel Alcazar, a Spanish Renaissance style building built in 1887. Commissioned by railroad magnate Henry M. Flager, architects Carrere and Hastings (who went on to design the New York Public Library and the U.S. Senate office building) designed the structure.
