Great view from the top, the climb is worth it. Other buildings on property have historical information and make the experience worth it. Suggestion, go early in the day before it gets uncomfortably hot in lighthouse.

This place is great! From the museum cat to the lens museum, this place has it all. The grounds are immaculate, the artifacts are labeled with great detail, the keepers houses are beautiful and the lens building has lens of all shapes, sizes and colors. This place is a bargain for a mere $5; much more to see than the... More

The 360 view from the top of the lighthouse is worth the climb to the top. There are landings along the way up to stop and catch your breath too.

You would think that when you arrive to this place that it would be nothing more than just a lighthouse but it is so much more than that. This is is a place that everyone should visit in their lifetime. The lighthouse itself is super cool from the look to the paint color to the winding staircase and to the... More

I have been visiting this lighthouse annually since 1998. And every time I go it is still as exciting as my first visit. Getting to escape the business of Daytona Beach is a real pleasure sometimes, and the lighthouse museum is the perfect place to do that. The buildings are filled with interesting history. And not to mention the absolutely... More

As a person afraid of heights a lighthouse is the last thing I usually want to do but WOW! The view is amazing and going to the top with all 4 of my kids was great. I recommend this to anyone in the area. The fee is definitely worth it. And after you are done there is a beautiful park... More

This was very enjoyable and interesting. Several displays and buildings to tour, including an informative video to watch.. Worth the money. Didn't climb all the way to the top of the lighthouse, but many said the view was great. Excellent gift shop. The grounds were well kept.
