LIGHTNER MUSEUM CURATOR’S TOURS

Posted:

For 60-plus years, the Lightner Museum – founded by Chicago publisher Otto Lightner and later dedicated to the city of St. Augustine – has offered one of the Southeast’s premier collections of eclectic and eccentric Gilded Age relics: an urn from a Russian palace, a blown-glass piston machine, and so on. Starting Sept. 3, curator Barry Myers resumes monthly guided tours of the Lightner’s many treasures, giving us a chance to more deeply connect with the building, its history and artifacts. The first tour focuses on rare, antique musical instruments.
