About this venue

Built by Henry Flagler in 1888 as an entertainment center for the opulent Ponce De Leon Hotel, the Lightner Museum once housed the world's largest indoor swimming pool. The beautifully restored Historic Pool and Mezzanine features a lofty wood beam ceiling, magnificent twin staircases, and multiple levels of space for dining and entertainment. The venue also boasts a large outdoor terrace, exquisite Grand Lobby, and lush courtyards. The Lightner Museum is ideal for couples looking for a unique, historic St. Augustine wedding venue.

    The Lightner Museum was an absolutely STUNNING place to hold our wedding. It’s been almost three weeks and guests are still raving about the atmosphere! I will say there are a lot of costs and permits associated with this particular venue but it was SO worth it in the end! If you’re looking for a historic vibe with unbelievable ambiance, this is the venue for you!
