The lighthouse and the beach around are beautifull. If you like snorkeling before the lighthouse there is a pier with many colofull fishes. The water is warm but there is a strong sea current. The fishes are beautiful !!!

The Museum has program that allows active duty members and their families to see the light house museum for free. This was a fun excursion for our family and the price was right.

We loved visiting the Key West lighthouse. We didn't have to wait in line and we practically had the place to ourselves.

This was a really cool piece of history of Key West.The view from the top of the lighthouse was fantastic and the plaques were very informative. The keepers quarters was interesting and provided more local history of Key West. Pretty cool piece of history.

Nice to see and the views are amazing, however, it's quite pricey for what it is. Has a small museum which we couldn't get in and has a lovely little gift shop. If you have a spare half hour or so and want a great view and learn a little history then worth a stop.

Make sure to climb the lighthouse and take a look at the history of Key West and the present through its windows.

We enjoyed the panoramic view from the top of the tower. Was a fairly quick trip as the museum doesn't take long to walk through.

This is one of those places you need to see at least once when in Key West. the view from the top is wonderful as you can see the whole city from there. The Keeper's Qtrs was a lesson in history of Key West and the dedication of the keepers and their families

It was a lighthouse with a lighthouse keeper museum. It was nice, but I don't know that it was worth the $10 they charge. You learned a lot about the lighthouses in that area and how the keepers lived though.
