We liked the guides choice of long or short version of the history lesson. Also, liked the view from the top of the light house.

My husband and I stopped here to just relax and enjoy the view. There wasn't anybody else around so it was really peaceful. The day was gorgeous. The view spectacular. Coming back here again

As lighthouse fans, we were there for the tour, and enjoyed the climb to the tower and all it held. Nice gift shop and friendly volunteers make the place a... More

The lighthouse is not very tall and the museum is fairly small. But the guide Tim was very engaging and made the visit very enjoyable and fun. The $4 admission was worth it. The garden and the view of the lake gave it a really pretty setting.

a gem of a small museum that takes the visitor back to an earlier era. Lovely small gift shop. Most of all a MOST relaxing place to spend an afternoon of peace and tranquility. Bring a picnic lunch (Stop at the ALton Coffee Cup and get one to go). Or if there on a Sunday afternoon, delight in a free... More

I was there in the off season (late april), so it was not accessible. There are 2 light houses,so be sure to visit both. The white one near the beach and this one which has a museum and a beautiful view of the lake.

This lighthouse is about 5 miles from our home and its simply lovely. We stop by every chance we get to take photos. I am a Hugh lighthouse lover and I have this photo displayed in my home. Grab an ice creme cone while your at it. Enjoy!

this is a marvelous, well-tended display with a breathtaking view of Lake Ontario and, when open, offering invaluable educational background on this importance of this site

The museum was closed when we visited so we only saw the outside. It is a beautiful lighthouse on well-kept grounds. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.
