Nice experience if you like lighthouses and a nice view. The museum volunteers were knowledgeable and very friendly. Well worth a quick stop if you are in the area

My year residence is not to far from from the lighthouse buit even though it is reasonably close I still enjoy viewing the scenery that I have seen for so many years. The coast of Maine on a pleasant summers morning is about as perfect as it gets. The view from the rocks near the lighthouse that includes the island... More

We always go here to see the beautiful lighthouse. This is one of the most photographic and historic places anywhere.

Such a pretty spot but our fault that we got there just as the little museum closed. The attendant was taking down the flag as we walked up. A nice spot for photography and we went on one of those glorious Maine days with a cobalt blue sky and warm temperatures, so we lingered awhile.

Why would you not visit this museum? It is located on a beautiful point of land and the museum is full of local, as well as, general nautical information. The personnel are very knowledgeable and willing to share. A "must" place to go.

You can't beat the view from the lighthouse. It really is amazing. The museum is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable people, even though it's quite small. The lighthouse is automated now so the home attached to it has been turned into this museum. You can see here how it worked in the past. But the view is by far the... More

Forrest Gump fans will know that one of the coastal stopping points was the Marshall Point Light House. There is a fun museum (with lots of pictures of the filming) and some knowledgeable docents. I couldn't help but wonder how they got their film crew and trucks out there. You'll have to go to get the story, no spoiler alert... More

This is a beautiful site. If you're a little unsteady on your feet, it's a little rocky/uneven walking. There's a village near by where you can dine or buy picnic items.
