People very knowledgeable on every floor, but lady on first floor isn't very kid friendly. Lovely place would love to go again. Beautiful building, bottom floor now a restaurant use to be a large indoor pool.

For the groupon price, it is a steal! The museum has 3 floors full of odd, interesting and beautiful collections. Alcazar restaurant is in the deep end of once the world's biggest indoor pool inside the museum. Plan to spend at least 2 hours... a nice good place to be away from the outside heat.

Little to no A/C. No map, audio guide or clear lay out of the different floors.

The music room demonstration was fun, and the place is full of fun oddities and collectibles. An interesting stop- still, I'm glad I paid via Groupon. Full price seems steep imo.

Some of the working antique instruments are played at 11:00a.m and 2:00 p.m. only. Also, there are two 2nd and 3rd floors. It is easy to miss some great displays if you don't know that. Lunch is served in the deep end of what used to be the world's largest indoor swimming pool!

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.
