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...

This is a very well preserved and lovely piece of local history, which you can go into and see. Make sure you are in shape to climb up it, it's a tall lighthouse. But the views are phenomenal. A great way to get you kids ready for a nap: and educational too.

We enjoyed our visit to the lighthouse. When you arrive the volunteers give you a sticker to wear that tells you what tour you are in. There Is a small museum with artifacts and a movie that you can sit and watch about the history of the lighthouse. The guide will get you when it's time for your tour. We... More

Unless you are really into local history, this is not the place for you. The museum is very small and wasn't particularly interesting to me. The Lighthouse .... is a lighthouse. I don't know what else to say. IF you are handicapped, don't bother with this one. If you are not handicapped, it's a roll of the dice as to... More

1. Expectations. I am a big fan of lighthouses and have had the privilege to tour several in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Bermuda. I will visit any lighthouse regardless of condition but always enjoy ones such as this that have been restored and are open to the public. I was not disappointed 2. Operating Hours.
