Want to see rare items and antiques from all over the world? No need to globe trot; you can simply visit one of St Augustine’s most popular St Augustine Attractions, the Lightner Museum. The Lightner Museum is a three-floor museum filled with antiquities from the Victorian period. Hailed as the “Smithsonian of the South” the Lightner Museum is one of the most beautiful structures as it was once the Hotel Alcazar during St Augustine’s days as a luxury resort area for America’s most wealthy families. The Lightner Museum is just less than a block from our St Augustine Florida Bed and Breakfast, Cedar House Inn.
