 Every year at Christmas time The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, also called “Whitehall,” is decorated in traditional Gilded Age splendor. The focal point of the Christmas decorations is a 16-foot-tall Christmas Tree in the Grand Hall, adorned with colored electrical lights and traditional Gilded Age style ornaments.

Bring your family and experience holiday traditions like the Annual Tree Lighting where you can meet Santa Claus, enjoy refreshments, hear music on the historic organ and watch as Henry Flagler's descendants and relatives light the Grand Hall Christmas Tree. The annual Special Christmas Lecture features a presentation on holiday traditions. During Holiday Evening Tours, families tour Whitehall after hours by the glow of the original light fixtures and learn the origins of American Christmas traditions.
