For 12$ a person to climb 129 stairs to the top of lighthouse was a bit much (24$ for 2 of us) for the 10 mins

We loved all of the history and of course the wonderful view from the lighthouse. However making children over the age of 2 wear a mask is completely overboard. Also it is overpriced. But u save two dollars if u are a military member.

For $30 for two adults and one child it took us prob 15 to go through the site. Because of social distancing and to prevent crowds- we literally had like a couple minutes once at the top of the lighthouse to look around and trek back down. Felt like it was a high price tag to be rushed through the exhibit.

Loved this museum, very informative with a history timeline with displays that tells the story of the lighthouse on the first floor. The second floor gives you a glimpse of how the the lighthouse keeper and their families lived. The view at the top of the lighthouse is definitely worth the climb up the 129 steps. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Take the time to visit this local treasure, you won't be disappointed.
