Enjoy the most breathtaking view in Northeast Florida from the top of our 165 ft. tall lighthouse tower, built in 1874. Visit the historic Victorian-era keepers' house to experience what life was like for the light keepers and their families. Kids will love exploring the shipyard playground and shaded maritime hammock nature trails. Discover the stories of ancient shipwrecks with our underwater archaeology team on a special guided tour. Or, if you're brave enough, try a Dark of the Moon paranormal tour of the lighthouse after hours! Snacks are available in the keepers' cafe and you can't leave without grabbing a souvenir in our gift shop. For discounts on tours and purchases, ask about our museum memberships! « less

The light house history is entertaining and interesting. The gardens are beautiful. A family can do the alligator farm and lighthouse in the same day. A must for kids to climb the stairs to the top.

We decided to take a walk to the St. Augustine Lighthouse directly from the Alligator farm, as we saw it was not far away and the weather was nice. It is a beautiful lighthouse and property. I have never had the opportunity to climb a lighthouse before. As my travel companion was too lazy to make the effort, I only... More

There's not a nuclear facility in sight! Sometimes when you go to a lighthouse, you can see nuclear and industrial plants somewhere in the distance. Here, all you see is beauty. So happy to visit this historic, beautiful city!

My sister and I climbed 219 steps to the top of the lighthouse, the view was well worth it! The staff in the museum were friendly and helpful. They took our picture. I learned a lot.

I'm a lighthouse fan, so this was a real treat. They don't have a lot of room to work with but what they do have they make count. They have a very good display of period equipment and photos of the lighthouse in it's hay-day. And they have a very nice store with good books and other treats. A great... More
