The Lightner Museum is housed in the former Alcazar Hotel, built by Henry Flagler in 1888. In 1948 Otto C. Lightner, the Chicago publisher and editor of Hobbies magazine, converted the empty hotel into a museum to contain his vast collection of decorative and fine arts, artifacts, and other antiques.

The five floors display furnishings, paintings, Victorian art glass, cut and blown glass, and natural history specimens. Other highlights include Oriental art, art nouveau works, and a Victorian Village portraying 19th-century life. The museum's collections are displayed within the hotel's entertainment center, where the spa level and ballroom were located and can still be seen. The former swimming pool, which was the World's Largest Indoor Swimming pool of the day, is the site of the Cafe Alcazar. The museum is self-guided with docents available to answer questions. Nineteenth-century mechanical musical instruments are demonstrated daily at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The Lightner Museum Store offers an eclectic collection of books, jewelry, ornaments, notecards, reproduction antiques, children's games and gifts.
