Lighthouse visit
Apr 2021
This is a fun stop if you like lighthouses. There are 88 steep steps to climb it,but is worth it for the view. It would be nice if they labeled the roooms in the keepers cottage to know what try were used for

Required visit for a history buff
Apr 2021
88 spiral steps to the top will afford you the best view of Key West in all directions. The museum on the grounds will give you a new appreciation for what the early lighthouse keepers were responsible for.

Worth the 88 steps
Apr 2021 • Family
Beautiful view ... lots of history ... even science buffs would get into the physics of the lenses and evolution from whale oil to electricity. Nice museum in the keeper's house. Very close to Hemingway's house, another nice stop.

Great view onto Key West, Hemingway House across the road
Mar 2021 • Family
I have reserved our tickets online, so the entry time was very fast. There are only eight visitors allowed into the lighthouse at a time, we were lucky that we were a group of only four. Masks are required, sanitizers are located at the base of the lighthouse. My teenage grandson enjoyed climbing the 88 steps and enjoyed the view. There is lots of interesting information in the keepers house. A nice place to visit since it’s located directly across from the Hemingway House.

The lighthouse and keeper's quarters were very interesting, Well kept and informative. The keeper's quarters is also a museum and we enjoyed that a lot.

Quaint lighthouse with gorgeous views.
Mar 2021
Easy walk up the lighthouse with a lengthy visit through the keeper's quarters -- well worth the price of admission. We were lucky that it was a gorgeous day and the views were incredible. Lastly, the lady in the gift shop was SO helpful, knowledgeable and obviously loved her job. Definitely recommend stopped here when in Key West.

Super views
Mar 2021
The 88 steps to the top are worth it to get the 360 degree view of the island. Right across the street from the Hemingway house. See the 30-40 foot tall frangipani/plumeria. Wellworth the stop!

Made the trek to the top, climbing the 88 steps, and it was totally worth it. The view is spectacular from the top. Definitely worth seeing.
