A nice activity

I was unaware that this lighthouse was even in this location. It was a nice thing to do on a Sunday afternoon if you are looking for something to fill the time.

I have lived my whole life in Milwaukee. When we had out of town relatives come to visit we wanted to show them something about Miwaukee. I heard about the lighthouse and figured we would try it for for the $5 entrance fee. What a great find, & great value! The museum is small but very interesting. Your entrance fee... More

The lighthouse is right on Milwaukee's ritzy lake front property. It is tall, but not huge. Seems well maintained, and the area around it is very residential, with a jogging/walking path going right up to it. It seems like a lovely area to go for a bike ride, or afternoon jog. The lighthouse wasn't open, it has odd hours, so... More

The lighthouse has limited hours so I just went to get pictures. Pretty location with beautiful houses surrounding the area. Easy to find.

We received a e-mail with suggestions of places to visit and this was what caught our eye. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The view was excellent and the history was great. Great way to spend a hour or two on a weekend afternoon.

Went out with wifey and son (6). It was 8C with sunlight. Windy a bit but still a great weather that morning. Everybody was so friendly, full of greets and smiles. The lighthouse is perfect for pictures. I came back after 16 years left Milwaukee

This is a nice place to stop for pictures. You can walk to back and see lake Michigan. Lighthouse has limited hours so check before going if you want to go inside.

Beautiful place to see right on Milwaukees lake front. After looking at the lighthouse go to North Point Custard. The burgers are great and so are the fries. Menu isnt that big, but they also serve custard and on a hot summer day nothing is better

As a Milwaukee native, I didn't even know that this place existed. And what a pleasant discovery! Part relaxing, part museum, and part fantastic view. Friendly volunteers. Really a must see for Milwaukeeans. Very interesting history.

This is a lot of fun and interesting facts.You are going to climb a ladder to look out, so where something practical, but you don't have to. It only costs a couple bucks. Veterans and service people are free, and there always seems to be a Groupon for this. Great something to see and do for the money.
