“THE Place for lighthouse junkies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

Wonderful exhibits, definitely too much to absorb in one trip. Largest display of Fresnel lenses I have seen in one place. Thanks to the foresight of Ken Black to preserve this part of our history.

“Marvelous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

This is a must-see for any lighthouse aficionado, like myself. The assortment of Fresnel lenses is beyond compare, let alone the other artifacts from lighthouses. Thank you Ken Black, the founder, may you RIP.

“OK to burn off an hour or two”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

If you really like lighthouses you may like this place but to me it was a bit of a snooze fest though there were some interesting lenses on display. Look you are paying good money to stay and eat here and this is what's to see?
