Here at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, we are always looking for new ways to provide unique experiences for our guests. Finding new ways to connect visitors with the fascinating history of South Florida is a huge part of our mission and enables us to preserve and maintain our estate. This is why we are so excited to announce that we will be continuing our 100th-anniversary celebration by offering a new, once-in-a-lifetime experience that will pamper and educate our guests.
For a gift of $5,000, donors will have the opportunity to participate in one of two luxurious “Night at the Museum” experiences. Donors may select between one experience that offers dinner for two, an overnight stay in Bonnet House’s newly renovated suite, and breakfast the next morning. Alternatively, donors can forgo the overnight stay and host an outdoor dinner on the veranda for eight guests, entertaining friends, and family members just as the Bartletts once did.
Both of these curated experiences will immerse participants in the leisurely life once enjoyed at a 1930s beachfront estate. They both include a private, docent-guided t our of the property as well as the rare opportunity to enjoy moonlit palms and watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. Guests will also be immersed in the elegant entertaining traditions of the Bonnet House estate and will get a glimpse into the leisurely lifestyles of Floridians in the early 20th century.
The “Night at the Museum” program is being offered to complete our museum’s $275,000 Re-vitalize Campaign that seeks to raise funds to support Bonnet House during a period of decreased visitation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. So far, we have raised $181,000 towards our goal. In addition to a truly memorable evening, “Night at the Museum” program participants will have the satisfaction of knowing that they have helped revitalize Bonnet House.
We hope that you consider joining us for an authentic “Night At The Museum” experience. Your gift to us will not only provide you with lasting memories but will also help us continue providing unique and educational experiences for years to come. For more information about this program, click here.
