nice museum and great views!

THis lighthouse is unique as it is not directly along the water, but more in town. The museum tell a lot of the history and the life of of the light keepers.

This is one of the nicer monuments when visiting the area. You will not be upset if you miss, but when in the area, you might as well go

Visited on a sunny day to take in the view from the top. There are other historical things to view on property - the $10 fee for adults seems high versus what you do get to see.

Good, relatively cheap attraction with a great 360 degree view. Unexpectedly, the Keeper's Quarters museum was quite nice and cool, if you do go don't forget to go there.

Altho I was afraid to go to the top, my son went. The grounds and keepers quarters were great with a fabulous dip into the history of the lighthouse and it's keepers and families. Gift shop holds some great stuff. Not that expensive for the tour either!

It's a beautiful well kept light house. The walk up was fun and slightly scary at the same time but the view is worth it. It's 10 bucks to get in. It's a nice spot to take in and get put of the heat.

If you're interested in the history of Key West this is a must stop attraction. the climb to the top is steep, intense and a little scary if you don't like heights but it's worth it to get to the top! A gorgeous 360 view.

This climb of 88 stairs is not for folks with weak knees. My granddaughter and I climbed about half way before there was a small landing to rest. And, the staircase is only wide enough for one person. By the time I got to the top, I was very much out of breath. But once outside, the view distracts you... More

Perfectly situated across from the Hemingway House, you don't want to pass up a quick trip up into the lighthouse! The view from the top is fantastic! You can see the whole island and well out into the water. Definitely worth your time. Check out the trees in the area and don't miss the museum! A huge shout out and... More
