We visited the Lightner Museum this past weekend with our adult children and 5 grandchildren, aged 3 to 8. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much. The museum has something for everyone. We ate lunch at Cafe Alcazar, which is inside the museum located in what used to be the pool. The service, food, and ambiance were wonderful.

Lunch at the cafe is 11-3pm. Hot there too late for that but it smelled really good.

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.
