There are rumors that the lighthouse is haunted, so we come every few months later in the day in hopes of seeing some paranormal activity. The basement lights flicker on and off often. Is it haunted? Probably not, but we love coming back.

If you are in Milwaukee, this attraction is worth a visit. It combines local history, scenic views, and walking trails. Depending on what you choose to see and do, your visit could last 1-2 hours. We toured the museum, listened to the presentation, and went up to the top of the lighthouse, and we spent about 1¼ hours there. Visitors... More

not much to do, but pretty to see and walk the grounds We visited as part of the Untapped tours. If you take the tour you are able to see a lot of the highlights of the city, the lighthouse was one of them.

We tried to visit this lighthouse on a Friday in August. Disappointed that it was not open, especially with all the nearby activities that were going on in the area that day.

The lighthouse is great... but walk around the path that is by the lighthouse for beautiful views and great people.

We visited the North Point Lighthouse on a chillier day in December. A volunteer at the lighthouse gave us such an informative tour. It was wonderful. I learned so much about Milwaukee that I hadn't heard before. The lighthouse is well designed, and a self-guided tour can easily be done as well. I highly recommend this stop in Milwaukee.

We paid the five dollars each to walk up to the top of the lighthouse and tour it. There was an older gentleman who walked around with us and gave us historical information about the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered questions that we had. The view from the top of the lighthouse was exquisite. The grounds around the... More

You can walk up to the top of the lighthouse. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes at most. The small museum is interesting. It doesn't take more 45 minutes are so to see everything.

The North Point Lighthouse is a great visit to stretch your legs and walk the path behind the site with views of the lake. The history of the lighthouse reveals how things change over time.
