Visited here on our way to Miami from Orlando. The staff were very friendly and there is a shop and a very interesting museum to visit. To view the lighthouse you must go on one of the tours as it is within private grounds but it is well worth the effort. The views from the top are fantastic and the... More

The light house is an awesome place to visit. The guide on the tour was very knowledgeable! The museum was set up nicely and clean. The gift shop had a good variety of things to purchase. Everything from the tour and the gift shop were reasonably priced.

The lighthouse is beautiful. We did not visit the inside or the grounds around it. You have to take a tour and stay with the docent. We did visit the small museum, which is very nice. The gift shop is cute and offers some nice souvenirs. The porch has several relaxing chairs and we spent a good bit of time... More

This is a beautiful lighthouse. It is worth coming to see. If you have the ability, climbing to the top is an experience. The views are incredible. I am scared of heights and managed to do the climb and walk the viewing deck. Due to the amount stairs and height, I would not recommend small children take the tour. My... More

This lighthouse was built just before the Civil War and is still in terrific shape since being taken over by the local Historical Society. The museum is small but interesting. Be sure to see the short film which forms a good base for what you will see. Do NOT attempt to climb to the top of the lighthouse (140 steps... More

We recently were in Jupiter and went to see the lighthouse and take the tour. There is a fee for the tour, adults, children and Florida residents (which was not posted). We went on the weekend, and the tours do fill up. While waiting for the tour leader, they have a little museum with artifacts and the history of the... More

There's no charge to take the tour and wander the museum, tho donations are accepted. The grounds are immaculate. The lighthouse is still operable. History abounds in the museum, and also related to the lighthouse and grounds. They take you up into the lighthouse (we were able to watch a "squall" moving in); great views of the ocean. Plan to...
