Great views of Key West. The self guided tour was fun and enjoyable. Being able to look out from the top was beautiful. The stairs up to the top was easy for us, but a bit dizzying (going round and round). The person at the...More

The lighthouse is 88 (I’m pretty sure) steep spiral stairs to the top. It’s a bit of a climb with a flat platform to rest and breathe for a moment part way up (but no room and no place to sit). It also allows you...More
I would have given this a higher rating but the lighthouse is difficult to navigate if there is any sort of crowd as the stairs are very narrow and steep. Also the observations platform is quite open and I would not recommend if for young...More
We were not planning to visit this attraction when in Key West, but we found ourselves with some spare time and decided to give it a quick try. The climb to the top of the lighthouse is a fun spiral staircase, although could be challenging...More

I was really surprised that this light house is located near the center of town, and surrounded by homes. I was informed that no, you cannot see Cuba from the light house! But it is always nice to visit a light house, and you wont...More

Hi Yes there is a fee for the lighthouse. It costs $10. to go in the lighthouse & museum. There are 80-90 steps to the top, where you can go outside and walk around the top of the lighthouse. It is a narrow stairway with people going up & down. The lighthouse is located on Whitehead street across from the Hemingway House.

Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on.
I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.
