Mother’s Day Tea at The Flagler Museum – Palm Beach, Florida

Treat Mom to an exclusive Mother’s Day celebration that she will long remember – a truly elegant tea service at the glorious Flagler Museum, a National Historic Landmark treasure of America’s Gilded Age.

The 75 room estate museum known as Whitehall is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway in sunny Palm Beach. The stately home was built by renowned industrialist and developer, Henry Flagler, as a winter retreat for his lovely wife. The home, a distinguished example of Beaux Arts architecture which was extremely popular during that period, is recognized as one of the most magnificent private dwellings in the world.

The Flagler Museum is open year round.

Hours: 

Tuesday to Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sunday: 12 noon to 5 p.m.

General Admission:

$18 Adults

$10 Youth; Ages 13-17

$3  Children; Ages 6-12

Children under 6 are Free

The museum’s Flagler Kenan Pavilion Cafe, which normally closes down for the summer months after Easter, will host the Mother’s Day festivities for the weekend with special hours. 

Mom will delight in a lunch menu of classic tea sandwiches, scones, sweets and the museum’s special blend of tea – all served on the exquisite Whitehall Collection of fine china. Each mother will also receive a colorful corsage, a keepsake photograph and a $10 gift card to the museum store.

It is without a doubt, every Mom will be impressed by her son’s or daughter’s refined taste and appreciation of arts, culture and history with this unique gift. This special outing will tower above the box of chocolates, the flowers and the greeting card – it will touch her heart and leave a lasting impression – a beautiful family memory for all to share for years to come!
