We signed up for one of there Moonrise Tours. Got there by 7:15 pm and were at the top of the lighthouse for the moon rise around 8:00 pm. Great evening watching a Full Moon rise over Jupiter

Definitely something you do not see very day. The museum is interesting and the beach and the lagoon are very nice and inviting. There is also an old house to tour which is a rare experience you can hardly find any more. Overall I can recommend spending a day touring the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.

Although we did not make the trip to the top of the lighthouse we enjoyed the museum. It gives you an excellent overview of the origins of the community. The gift shop is really good-best nautical collection!

The Jupiter lighthouse museum is small but full of ver interesting artifacts and displays. Items displayed are clearly numbered and identified. You feel like you step back in time and are among those that settled in Florida long before highways and population explosion. The museum is very nice and the staff is very friendly. Cost includes both the lighthouse museum,... More

We came here as a group to fish for the day. The lighthouse was historic. Not like they make them now. Great views of the ocean and coastline. Sunrises and sunsets to die for! This inlet has the most extreme tidal currents I have ever witnessed. Beautiful, amazing, deep yet treacherous all at the same time. Be sure to watch... More

We love to come to the lighthouse and museum each time we come to Jupiter. The tour guides are knowledgeable and are excited to share the history with the guests. The area is beautiful and the views are stunning. Our kids have been coming here since they were little. It's a favorite spot for our family.

Thank Eric And Beth B
