What a nice tour of the lighthouse and museum! Volunteers provide a tour rich in history and local information. You don't have to climb all the steps to see the wonderful view but I recommend it to anyone fit enough to climb the almost 150 steps. There is a circular staircase inside the lighthouse and in my case and others,... More

A very nice lighthouse, well maintained. The tour could have been more informative considering the price of admission, $10. Visitors are not permitted to wander about the area. The lighthouse is gated and can only be accessed with a tour guide.

They charge $10.00 a person and you must go in a group with a guide. Otherwise the lighthouse is behind a chain link fence with NO access. Disappointing....

A visit to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is well worth it! The museum at the entrance is great and can be seen while you await your tour. The lighthouse tour is a guided tour and the guide was very well informed and included much about the history of the area around the lighthouse. The winding walk up the... More

I think its 150 steps to the top. I was sore for 3 days after. Pretty scary walk up and down too. The view was amazing from the top. And the property is awesome.

It was very windy on the day of our visit and therefore not doing tours, but the museum and gift shop had plenty of things to do and look at. Great landmark.

A great locale, and interesting viewing of the inlet. Quite the histroy from the Spanish Galleon sunk in 12/1659, through the civil war and to today!

This is a very interesting land mark in Florida. Learn something about the unique history of the lighthouse in the museum and on the tour. If it is a small group the tour is about an hour, but could run longer if you are part of a large group. The lighthouse is rather narrow inside but the 100 or so... More
