The title sums it up. When one has seen as many lighthouses and I have, they all start to look the same. This one, however, is taller than the usual and nicely painted. It also has its rotating beacon able to be seen from great...More

Hi Bob, Thanks for the nice review and description of the lighthouse. It's the 10th tallest in the US, and tied for that title. So you are right, but next time please come on in and see what more the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum...More

After climbing the lighthouse stairs you are treated to a wonderful view of the entire area. A great display of underwater artifacts from the area and life at the lighthouse from the past along with the shrimping industry.

The many steps to the top are worth the beautiful 360 degree views. The museum also offers a lot of interesting history on the lighthouse.

Dear Reviewer, Thanks for the amazing review. Thank you as well for stepping up to help our non-profit museum keep the light shining. You made a difference with your visit. Cordially, Kathy A. Fleming Exec Director

Amazingly presented museum within the lighthouse. Every few turns around the lighthouse while ascending the steps, there is another display, explaining something about the lighthouse. Well worth the entrance fee.

We thought this would be a quick visit, but there was so much to see, do, LEARN--one of few places I have felt was totally worth admission, and would go back to in future, send donation for. I recommend going first in morning. The staff...More

We were there when kids were still out of school. Never felt crowded though. There are outbuildings and a good gift shop to explore. Even a little snack shop on the property.
