Founder’s Day – Free Admission

June 5 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Founder’s Day

Sunday, June 5, 2022
Free admission during regular Museum hours (Noon to 5 pm)

On June 5th each year the Flagler Museum celebrates its anniversary by opening to the public free of charge in honor of the Museum’s founder, Jean Flagler Matthews.

Whitehall was built by Standard Oil partner Henry Flagler in 1902 adjacent to his hotels. Flagler spent winters in Palm Beach with his wife Mary Lily until his death in 1913.  Flagler’s youngest granddaughter, Jean Flagler Matthews, rescued the estate from potential demolition and established the Flagler Museum on June 5, 1959.

Whitehall’s first and second floors will be open, as will Railcar No. 91 in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion, for those who visit during Founder’s Day. The Museum Store will be holding its annual clearance event, with markdowns on fantastic items including books and jewelry. Iced tea, lemonade, and lavender cookies will be available for purchase and may be enjoyed outside on Museum grounds.
