The walk to the top is worth the 360 view of 2 different oceans. Watch the narrowness of the stairs if people are going both directions! The museum was less impressive than some, although worth noting that it was kept by a woman during a time that women weren't really working let alone in service positions. Maybe not worth the...

Walk up the steps to the lighthouse and you have 360 degree excellent views of the entire island. The keeper's quarters was very educational.

I've been here several times. There is a charge to enter the lighthouse and keepers quarters. Climbing the lighthouse staircase can be difficult as its narrow and circular but once at the top there is a beautiful 360 walkway to see the area from above. The keepers house is full of artifacts, some audios and video. On the grounds are... More

Beautiful experience in a surprising island! Just in front of Hemingways' Don't miss it. Just don't miss anything in this place. It's like a small sample of New Orleans.

I liked the fact one could take as much or as little time as one wanted to explore the lighthouse and the museum. There is a lot of history involved here. I enjoyed the fact that we could climb to the top of the lighthouse. The views up there were phenomenal! I definitely recommend this to anyone who has the... More

The downtown historic district lighthouse is easy to get to and easy to climb as it is open to the public and has a great view all around. a must do for those sightseers in Key West. It is not expensive, and right across the street from Hemmingway's Mansion.

Loved the lighthouse and the keeper's quarters. The view from the top of the lighthouse is amazing. Spiral steps and limited space makes traffic a bit tight going up and down the stairs, but people are generally considerate and did I say that the view was worth it. Neat place.
