Our Welcome Center, Stop 20, is temporarily closed. The St. Augustine Ghosts & Gravestones boarding location has changed temporarily to the Old Town Trolley Welcome Center at 1305 N. Ponce de Leon Blvd. These changes will remain until the construction of our new Welcome Center at 27 San Marco is complete (Spring 2019).
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!
