Fun way to learn history of the lighthouse.

Nice self guided tour through the keepers quarters, museum and lighthouse. Great view of the entire island from the top of lighthouse. Price seems a little high, $10 per person... read more

Nice views of Key west from the top. The museum was ok but nothing special. At least the entrance fee keeps a piece of history alive

Nice self guided tour through the keepers quarters, museum and lighthouse. Great view of the entire island from the top of lighthouse. Price seems a little high, $10 per person, but funds go to the upkeep and maintenance. Very informative and interesting history lesson.

If you can climb the 88 steps, you must visit the lighthouse! The history and the gorgeous panoramic views are well worth the climb.

This is a nice activity in KW for a reasonable price. Climb to the top for a great 360-degree view of the island! Nice breeze and some shade at the top. The Keeper's Quarters Museum is interesting and historical, although a little on the small side. Gift shop is nice and the staff is friendly and helpful. If you are... More

88 steps so not too bad for the feint hearted. Excellent panoramic views from the top. Reasonalbe price to get in and the museum is quaint with interesting things displayed from the people who worked there.

The lighthouse is good and is across the way from the great Hemingway House so it is a cool two for one. Keep trucking down Whitehead Street with the lighthouse on your right and it will take you directly to the Southernmost Point in the USA monument. KW in general is a nice place to spend a little time and... More

We were visiting Key West, and the lighthouse is a must see, very well preserved, interesting, and also if you climb to the top, you get a great view. Special mention deserves the gentleman that was in charge of admission ticket sales and the gif shop... very kind and serviceable.
