Easter Egg Hunt 


Easter Egg Hunt

There are 8,000 Easter eggs hidden around the Flagler Museum’s grounds, awaiting discovery. The Flagler Museum organises its annual hunt exceptionally well, with areas demarcated for different age groups, so toddlers are as likely to fill their baskets as 10-year-olds.
