This is an excellent museum. If you are out of shape or scared of heights, the lighthouse itself may not be for you. There are approximately 200 stairs to climb. I would not let that stop me from a visit, though. There are other things to see at this attraction (different lighthouse prisms, lighthouse keepers houses, history of the lighthouse... More

I went to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum expecting to find a lighthouse on a beach that I would be able to photograph from multiple angles and a beach that I could walk. Instead, I found a lighthouse behind a fence that required an admission charge to get beyond. I managed a few decent pictures of the... More

We have been to a lot of lighthouses up and down the eastern seaboard but this was the best restored lighthouse and grounds. Also, one of the keepers of the lighthouse was of the Sisson family and we were amazed to find that. Everything, even the house the keepers lived in were restored; even an outhouse before plumbing. It was... More

Ponce lighthouse is a really fun way to spend a few hours. The grounds are very clean and well maintained. There are about five museum buildings with interesting historical items from the lighthouses past. The lighthouse itself is a fun 200ish steps. My kids and mother were able to complete the walk to the top with no difficulty. There is... More

Only $5 to tour the grounds and climb the lighthouse. Give yourself 2 hours to check it all out if you like to learn and experience! The view from the lighthouse is amazing!

I had a conference at DisneyWorld, and rather than waste a lot of money to enter a park to see Disney gift shops once again (such as Epcot) we rented a car from the Alamo rental site at the DW car care center, and drove to Ponce Inlet Lighthouse on a Sunday afternoon. It takes a bit to trek off... More

If you like lighthouse like I do you will enjoy this one. To reach the top of the light house requires you to climb 203 steps. There is a sign noted that one of the "Lighthouse Keepers" that suffered a heart attack while climbing the stairs to light the Kerosene beacon light in performance of his duties and was found...

We went to the lighthouse while waiting for an Eco tour, so didn't have time to look at any of the museum. The view from lighthouse was beautiful and climb not too bad.
