First thing is not to confuse this historic attraction with Lighthouse Point Park; that's in a different location with it's own admission charge. As for the Lighthouse & Museum, not only was I impressed with the superbly maintained lighthouse that was built in 1897 but the surrounding buildings such as the light keeper residences were also well maintained with historical...

Lighthouse itself was neat to go up in and the views were beautiful. The museum was not all that interesting just a bunch of buildings to look in. There is a gift shop that has some nice stuff, but don't take any large bags/book bags or drinks they will not let you bring them in.

I didn't go up in the lighthouse as heights are not my favorite thing, but toured the grounds. They have several buildings giving the history of this lighthouse and the lives of the people and families that tended the light over the years. I particularly enjoyed the display of the different lights.

I can't say enough nice things about this attraction. The staff are so friendly, the grounds are well kept, the history is amazing and the lighthouse is beautiful from top to bottom. This was our favorite place in Florida!

I visited this attraction last week and enjoyed it immensely. I did not enter the museum however, enjoyed the view of the lighthouse and its history explained in signage. The gift shop was very well laid out and a tourists' haven for interesting articles for sale and souvenirs in abundance. The staff was terrific and I really enjoyed speaking with... More

We have been here numerous times over many years. This year we made a stop and let the kids climb the lighthouse. Beautiful view! Looking in each building and learning all the interesting facts is a great way to spend an hour or two. You can find a souvenir in the gift shop as well. I recommend a visit on... More

Very informative and beautiful and quite a deal at only $5.00 for admission! Big bang for the buck! Really brings you back to another time. They allow you to go back anytime on the same day of admission so if one wanted to go back in the evening to watch the sunset one can do so.

Plenty of parking greets you. You first go through the gift shop to purchase entry to the lighthouse. Not expensive at $5.00 per person for anyone over 11 and $1.50 for younger ones The grounds are wonderful with many old buildings to look at (lighthouse keeper, assistant keeper) to name a few. Of course, the main attraction is the lighthouse.... More

I'm a local and I visited the lighthouse for the first time today. This is one of the most beautiful, unique, well-kept attractions I think I've ever seen -- it is really special. Everything is beautifully preserved and explained. The view from the top is extraordinary. I am so impressed by the Ponce Inlet community's work here. I have a... More

I applaud the community's accomplishment with this standout historic display. Not only is the lighthouse fully restored to its near-original condition, but also are the lighthouse keeper's and his assistants' homes too. Displays feature authentic items from the original structures and some full lens displays from other historic lighthouses. Don't miss the Cape Canaveral original lens in the lens room.... More
