Such interesting history, and a fascinating building. We watched a demonstration of the original antique musical instruments and machines. There's so much to see, and I was glad there were pictures of the original swimming pool. It was time well spent!

Allow plenty of time to see all of the exhibits and be sure to visit the ballroom gallery.

The first floor is the most interesting, with scientific instruments from the past, Native American pieces.. and don't miss the demo of the old musical crank-up instruments. When we visited, the demo was done at 10am and 2pm. Also not to be missed - the Cafe Alcazar in the old swimming pool. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere, the most unique experience. A fabulous place to see the past.

Parking is tough around there so give yourself enough time to get a space. It was a wonderful museum with 3 floors of interesting collections. From the music room to the mummy child it is well worth it.

From Our Editors

With an in-depth collection of Victorian-era art and artifacts, Lightner Museum could find no better setting to house its works than the former Alcazar Hotel, built in 1887. Relics cover three floors of the intricately architected building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designed in Spanish-Renaissance style by the visionaries behind the New York Public Library. Inside the magnificent lobby, whitewashed pillars connect high ceilings bordered by intricate plastered molds with amaranthine-hued mosaic floors.

Wander into the Science and Industry room for views of a taxidermied crocodile suspended from the ceiling, mingling among cases filled with statuettes and antique globes. Moving into neighboring galleries, a carved and gilded neoclassical rocking chair and colorful, mosaic-like Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps provide insight into the daily lives of Victorian citizens. Other 19th-century paintings and statues showcase the era's artistic inspiration as well as its curious fashions, such as wearing Santa Claus hats year-round.
