The Oldest Store Museum Experience will be closed Monday, January 20, 2020 for maintenance. The museum will resume regular business hours on Tuesday.
Ghosts and Gravestones and Old Town Trolley’s Famous Nights of Lights evening tours will be closed for a private event on January 23rd. Tours will resume again on January 24th. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Music Room, filled with musical instruments produced between 1870s and 1920’s at the height of the Gilded Age, is the Museum’s most popular exhibits. Antique mechanical music demonstrations offered at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily are an entertaining glimpse into the lifestyle and taste of people of privilege of America’s past.
When visiting the Lightner for these mid-day presentations, make time for another unique Museum experience: a tasty lunch in Café Alcazar, located in the area that once was once the hotel’s swimming pool!
