This lighthouse is a historic landmark in Montauk. It is a bit of a workout to climb all the stairs up to the top, all in glass - great view, but it is not a must. The lighthouse is in great condition, but you are not allowed to walk up on the metal floor of the glass top!

I love lighthouses and this one is not only beautiful and imposing but this lighthouse was ordered by George Washington and is the oldest lighthouse in the state of New York. The tower stands 110 feet high and of course the view at a lighthouse is always grand and this one is no exception.

Loved the beautiful view at Montauk Point. So serene as the lighthouse stands on a high hill overlooking the Atlantic. But fences surround the lighthouse grounds from quite a distance away! And a bit pricey to get in the gate plus additional cost to park! Beauty shouldn't cost this much.....a small fortune for a family!

Part of our trip from New Jersey to Long Island was going to see the Montauk Lighthouse with the kids. It's the perfect place to see history! The price of admission is so they can maintain the building and grounds. $10 per adult seems like a lot but is not. You must try waking up the spiral staircase to the... More

This was our fifth time out to the lighthouse on Montauk Point. The views are amazing, but you should go on a clear day. There are trails you can walk down to the ocean, and we would highly recommend the flat rock trail around the perimeter of the lighthouse which is accessible without going into the actual grounds of the...

Travelled all the way to Monauk Light house from garden city. Had a quick stop. Very nice photos can be taken. It can also be very windy during winter.

We visited on a beautiful clear blue sky day. The view was beautiful. The museum staff was helpful, friendly and informative. The only drawback that I found was that you had to pay $8 to park and then pay to enter the grounds.

Well worth visiting he lighthouse at Montauk. Firstly and I guess most importantly, if you are up for the climb to the top of the lighthouse, the views back to Montauk and further into Long Island which are stunning. Popping your head up into the light section is also quite an experience. The lighthouse though also deserves credit for its... More
