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 at 10 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner's eclectic relics.
March’s Curator’s Tour, “Serving up Elegance at Lightner Museum,” will focus on the etiquette of fine dining and entertainment. On display will be selected pieces demonstrating the elaborate customs of setting a table and the appropriate manners expected. Guests will be able to see how particular dining trends, such as those of the French court of Louis XV, continue to have a place in modern customs with such people as Martha Stewart.
Tours are included in the price of admission and will begin in the front lobby of the Museum at 10am the first Wednesday of each month. Admission is free for St. Johns County residents with valid identification.
An opportunity to meet Mr. Myers, along with an interactive tour, give 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.
