Witness an impressive collection of 19th-century fine and decorative arts in the opulent surroundings of the former Hotel Alcazar. Ghoulish shrunken heads, human hair art, buttons, typewriters, porcelain and fine art paintings; all this and more has a home at the Lightner Museum.

Now proudly occupying a place on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel was built in 1888 in the Spanish Renaissance style. It’s old-school elegant and makes an interesting setting for the collection - not least when you get to the shrunken heads!

See furniture, sculpture and various household items from the 19th century, all housed across four floors. The Music Room is particularly fun! It's packed with instruments made between the 1870’s and 1920’s, and if you're around at 11am or 2pm, you'll even hear the mechanical ones play.

From salt and pepper shakers to Tiffany glass to Thomas Rahner’s exquisitely detailed, hand-carved boat models, there's bound to be something you'll wish you could take home from the Lightner Museum. At least there's a gift shop!
