history_photo02_lgThe Lighter Museum is one of the most outstanding of St Augustine’s landmarks. The original Hotel Alcazar has been renovated and rebuilt as today’s Lightner Museum and is hard to miss among the other attractions of St Augustine. The eye-catching Spanish architecture ensures that one definitely pays a visit inside it. Once inside the museum building one will be intrigued at the varied treasure that this museum has to offer. Unlike some other famous museums around the world, the Lightner Museum has quite warm atmosphere that will surely appeal to those wanting to spend a quiet afternoon with close ones.

The museum derives its name after Otto C. Lightner who chose and bought this place in 1946 to house his several Victorian antiquities. Today, not just Victorian but 20th century daily life has also been displayed through both commonplace and luxurious collectibles. It is now owned by St Augustine. In fact, 19th and 20th century American life has been portrayed vividly within the museum. The best displays are those of Tiffany and cut glass as well as a large hoard of musical instruments. Such a wide display is sure to capture the hearts of both children and adults.

The visit to Lightner Museum becomes more enjoyable with a light snack or lunch at the Café Alcazar. The position of the café is marvelous and is situated where once the indoor swimming pool of Hotel Alcazar used to be. Museum timings are from 9 in the morning till 5 in the evening. Student tickets and those aged 12 to 18 cost less while the trip is absolutely free for those below 12. Admission fee is also very nominal for adults. The Lightner Museum is a perfect retreat for those who wish to take a break from beach activities in St Augustine.
