Formerly the Alcazar Hotel, the Lightner Museum continues the tradition of providing unique spaces for special events. Built in 1888 as an entertainment center for the luxurious Ponce de Leon Hotel, it was visited by more than 25,000 guests. Countless more used the recreational facilities of the Casino and the world’s largest indoor swimming pool.

Now, the former Pool and Mezzanine can accommodate sit down dinners, receptions, dancing, and a variety of entertainment for up to 400 guests. A spacious outdoor terrace, weather permitting, can be used for additional seating. The Grand Ballroom Gallery is suitable for cocktails or passed hors d’oeuvres for 400. For up to 250 guests, the front lobby is perfect for a ceremony and light reception. The carefully restored library and board room provide a quiet, elegant spot for an intimate dinner or special celebration.

For an incomparable experience in a world-class setting that is listed on the Register of Historic Places and has hosted celebrations for 125 years, consider the Lightner Museum for your special event.
