First lady Melania Trump and Akie Abe, wife of the Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, left the Flagler Museum about noon.
The two took a 40-minute tour of the mansion led by the museum's director Erin Manning. They saw Henry Flagler's private railcar, Railcar No. 91, exhibited in the museum's pavilion. The museum acquired the railcar in 1959 and restored it to its original condition. They also learned about wicker wheelchairs on display. Propelled by a bicyclist from behind, wealthy vacationers sat in the wheelchairs while traversing Palm Beach during the early 1900s.
A guest organist, whose name was not available, then serenaded Trump and Abe in the mansion's music room. The 24-rank pipe organ was one of the largest ever installed in a private home of its day. "It wasn't too loud?" the organist asked after playing a selection of music. "It's good exercise," he said. The first lady thanked the organist.
A first lady spokeswoman confirmed that Melania Trump plans to attend Barbara Bush's funeral. She did not know if the president also plans to attend.
