"Lightner Museum" Lightner Museum Tip by grandmaR
Lightner Museum, Saint Augustine: 13 reviews and 25 photos
I have not been to this museum since 1954 when I went with my parents. At that time, my dad mostly took photos of the buttons that were displayed because my grandmother collected buttons.
The usual quote which is repeated in various websites comes from the museum's initial webpage.
Relics of America's Gilded Age are elegantly exhibited on the museum's three floors. Costumes, furnishings, mechanical musical instruments and other artifacts give you a glimpse into 19th century daily life. The Lightner collection includes beautiful examples of cut glass, Victorian art glass and the stained glass work of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
The pictures of the Tiffany glass on their website look amazing, so this is definitely a place to go if you are interested in art deco, art nouveau or neo-classical design
