Curator tours continue at Lightner

SAINT AUGUSTINE – : Monthly Curator’s Tours feature unique and special treasures of the Lightner Museum.

The tours are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner’s eclectic relics.

November’s tour will be held on Nov. 7 at 10 a.m.  Curator, Barry Myers, will discuss the fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes bizarre world of German and Bohemian ceramics and glass.  He will also touch on the first European discovery of porcelain, which originated in Germany c. 1710. Until the early 18th century the Chinese held the secret of true porcelain, and had kept it secret for thousands of years.

Tours are included in the price of admission and will begin at 10 a.m. in the front lobby of the museum on the first Wednesday of each month.

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.
