Amazing view!
Oct 2021
Have to admit, climbing narrow spiral stairs (88 of them) was a small challenge. Thankfully, when people are coming up, no one is allowed to start down and vice versa. It provides a 360 degree view of the surrounding area with major locations highlighted on photos. The keepers' quarters and museum were really interesting, lots of history and information about coastal lighthouses. Well worth the cost. And a hint - if you scan a QR code at the entrance and buy your ticket that way, it's $2 off.

Nice place to learn some history
Oct 2021
Wasn't able to climb the lighthouse and see the view, wish I could have. I feel that should be monitored a bit better. Only let a small group climb the stairs and then when that group came down send the next group up, due to the narrow stairs.

Best Sunset Experience

We booked the private sunset experience and quite honestly cannot rate this high enough! It was a spectacular experience that I suggest everyone book if they have the opportunity.

Worth a Visit
Oct 2021 • Couples
Initially unsure about the reward for the price, we throughly enjoyed our visit. Everyone we met that worked there was friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed talking to them and learning more about the Lighthouse and Key West in general.

The views from the top of the lighthouse are nice but it can be windy at the top.

Lots of Florida history
Sep 2021
The view from the light house was wonderful where points of interest were plainly displayed. The Keeper's quarters provided a lot of history regarding the many light houses around The Key's.

Girl Power - three female Lighthouse Keepers
Sep 2021
I wanted to visit the site to learn more about the female lighthouse keepers - it's a fascinating bit of history to read about the families who stayed at the lighthouse and their roles. The house was filled with informative exhibits. The grounds have some beautiful trees. While we were there they were installing flood lights to illuminate the property at night, I can imagine this will be so lovely.

Only 88 steps to great views
Aug 2021 • Couples
We have gone in a few light houses and this was the smallest…..which was good. The information and displays are great. My husband talked a long time with one of the workers and he was very informative. We were able to pick out certain buildings around the top decking.

visit!

Even though it is 88 steps up, it is worth the view. You will see a lot of history here. Interesting to see how it worked. Also, I don't think there are a lot of lighthouses that you can get into so if you can, do it. You can see it all in less than an hour. It's across from the Hemingway House.
