Curator’s Tours













Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum. The tours are the first Wednesday of each month (September – May) at 10 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner’s eclectic relics.

An opportunity to meet Mr. Myers, along with an interactive tour, gives local residents and tourists alike an opportunity to learn the history of the building and to explore more deeply the Museum’s collections.

Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour. Tours are included in the price of admission. 

Admission is free for St. Johns County residents with valid identification.

No reservations needed for this tour.
