“I climbed it and so can you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This lighthouse is a great first time climb. The museum is well worth the admission. Very interesting and full of historical treasures. The view of the water and surrounding area is breathtaking. The lighthouse is located downtown among the shopping and good restaurants.

“Worth the Climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The Saint Simons Lighthouse Museum is a great way to spend a couple of hours. You can climb to the top of the working lighthouse and the views are amazing. The staff there is very knowledgeable about the history of the lighthouse and are more than willing to answer any questions you have.

“Very cool to go inside a lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. The Eugenia Price room was great. Take your camera and get some pics from the great view at the top of the lighthouse.

“St. Simon's Light House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

It was a gorgeous fall afternoon to view the highest point in the village. At $10 an adult, I didn't feel ripped off and the ticket did include the Maritime Coast Guard Museum as well. I like the way the lighthouse had two stairs of 10 and then a small landing where you could stop if needed. Having climbed a number of lighthouses where that is not the case, we found that to be helpful at our age. :-) Beautiful view and nice grounds and history.
