I visited the lighthouse with friends and had a grest time. I am afraid of heights but was still able to climb to the top slowly and step outside to see the view. All of the employees were helpful, patient and very knowledgeable. The museum has beautiful pictures showcasing Jupiter's history. I will bring my kids back when they are... More

First, you should understand that I'm one of those people who love lighthouses. When traveling on a coast I'll always check to see if there are any lights and make a point to see them if I can. Knowing this you will probably detect my bias. Jupiter is number 43 out of approximately 458 lights (including light ships, etc.) in... More

As this seems to be the only 'historic' place in Jupiter, it's a must visit. The view from the top is definitely worth it. Before you climb the lighthouse, a docent leads you through the grounds and tells you the local history. Nice gift shop and good view of the Jupiter Inlet.

We love outdoors and sightseeing. Jupiter lighthouse is a combination of both. There is a fee to walk into the former Coast Guard and Navy base, but worth it for those who want to see a spectacular view and learn a little history about the land and its people. Climbing up (& down) is not for those with medical conditions...orthopedic,... More

My bride and I went here but did not pay to visit the lighthouse and museum. We wanted pictures only. We got those and moved on.
