SAINT AUGUSTINE – 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.

\What’s really in a picture or piece of art? The May 3 curator’s tour will focus on the use of moral and religious, both Christian and Pagan, themes that are prevalent in art. Using some of the pieces in the Lightner Museum collection, Educator Elizabeth Graham will briefly explore the centuries-old tradition of using art to tell more complex stories.

La TentationTours are included in the price of admission and 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.

Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour.

The Lightner Museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by the generous support of individuals, businesses and sponsors.
