If you love history, this is a must see! Awesome view, and the Fort across the street was interesting as well.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

The lighthouse keeper Mr. Smith was very personable and friendly. Also, you could walk up to the very top of the lighthouse onto the railing. So glad that we decided to do this while at Tybee!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Came here on our visit to Savannah and couldn't miss this awesome site that has some great history. 178 steps later we were at the top of the Lighthouse. What a beautiful view! After that we went to the adjacent museum, which was also very interesting. Definitely worth coming here on your visit to Tybee Island.

The museum, batteries and homes were beautifully restored and provided tons of information for us history buffs. Lighthouse is beautiful and the views were lovely. Very friendly service.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

My wife and I drove over to Tybee from Savannah and chose to make a stop at the Tybee Island Lighthouse and Museum. If you can make it up the 150+ stairs, the top provides for beautiful views of this little island. They have renovated the house on property to provide a glimpse of what the lighthouse keeper's home would look like. The museum across the street provides some interesting details and artifacts from the history of Savannah's beach. During our visit the price was $9 to visit, and there is free parking at the lighthouse, which is nice considering most all parking on Tybee is not. A must see in Tybee!
