100+ Teachers Enjoy Free Visit to Flagler Museum
In celebration of classroom heroes, the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum welcomed 126 educators for complimentary tours during its recent Teacher Appreciation Hours program.
Held in conjunction with the Palm Beach County School District's Spring Break week, educators from more than 60 local schools, as well as those teaching in virtual and home-school programs, enjoyed free admission from Tuesday, March 16th through Friday, March 19th.
Each educator also received free educational resources to take back to their classrooms, as well as a special thank you gift. Teacher Appreciation Hours were generously underwritten by Templeton & Company.
"It was so wonderful to provide this retreat to teachers, who have been working in extraordinary circumstances this school year and deserve a giant thank you," said Allison Goff, Member and Visitors Services Director at the Flagler Museum. "The Flagler Museum is grateful to Templeton & Company for helping us to provide our classroom heroes with this opportunity to enjoy the beauty and elegance of our historical architecture and our collection of fine art." The Flagler Museum also welcomed approximately 200 children and youth for general admission tours during Palm Beach County's spring break, many of whom attended with their educator parents.
The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum was completed in 1902! Whitehall, Henry Flagler’s Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach, was hailed by the New York Herald as “more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world.” Today, Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark and is open to the public as the Flagler Museum, featuring changing exhibitions and special programs. The Museum is located at One Whitehall Way, Palm Beach, FL 33480.
