During the Christmas holiday season, Whitehall's first floor is decorated in traditional Gilded Age splendor. The focal point is a 16-foot-tall Christmas Tree in the Grand Hall, adorned with colored electrical lights and traditional Gilded Age-style ornaments. Whitehall's exterior and historic gate are also adorned with festive wreaths.

The Flagler Museum will begin decorating Whitehall for the holidays the week of November 9, 2020 and decorations will be on full display as part of our new Visitor Experience through Christmas Eve. (The Flagler Museum is closed on Christmas Day.) General admission tickets are now available for purchase through the end of the year!
