The retired gentleman who gave the tour did an excellent job. As he grew up in the area, he could also give us an historical viewpoint. Had plenty of time to walk around at the top of the lighthouse.

We visited the lighthouse and museum during a recent vacation. The price seems fair for the experience. It was $9 to view the museum and tour the lighthouse. The climb to the top has a few landings so you can catch your breath or see the view. We were there on a mild day and it was pretty windy, so... More

Walked 107 stairs to the top,. There are little landing areas to stop and rest along the way. Once at the top, absolutely beautiful . We were able to watch the sunset in the west and the moonrise in the east. It was a bit breezy and chilly, but wonderful view!

There are three parts to this attraction. The museum tells the story not only of the significance of the place to safety at sea, but also of the several hundred years of history of Indian occupation under the English and the Spanish. The lighthouse is interesting in many respects, and the tour takes you to the observation platform right at... More

I've lived in Florida for 8 years and had never visited the lighthouse until a few weeks back and I was pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful day to climb the lighthouse and then when we arrived at the top the views were gorgeous. It was very inexpensive and was a nice way to start the day in Jupiter. There... More

Visited the lighthouse for the first time & enjoyed the view! The lighthouse overlooks the intracoastal & the views are just beautiful! It costs $9 for adults to take the tour of the lighthouse & the museum/gift shop. I wasn't so interested in the tour at first, but it turned out to be informative! If you have kids, it would...

This was a good tour. We had a guide that talked to us about the history of the lighthouse and about the area. There was also a guide at the top of the lighthouse that talked to us about the lighthouse. There were 39 steps to get to the lighthouse as well as 105 steps to the top. After every... More

This is a great place to visit while in Jupiter as you get to see a birds eye view of the turquoise blue intracoastal, the Jupiter inlet, Jupiter Island, Jupiter beaches and much more, nice guided tour explaining the history of Jupiter and the lighthouse. The climb to the top is not difficult since you can pause along the way... More

This was a really great outing. There is a lighthouse and museum, plus a nice picnic area along the water. The docent (guide) showed us around the property right by the lighthouse and took us up to the top. It is a spectacular view from the top and we had a beautiful day to experience it. The museum has a... More
