Pluses- quaint museum, great view from top of lighthouse, food available, fantastic, interesting museum artifacts from Seminole Indians ,etc. Kelsey gives a great tour!
Drawbacks- only took me an hour to do everything. However, that might be good if you are with young children with short attention spans.
You can swim in the inlet there. Free parking. Nice selection of gifts in shop. Volunteer run

Funny that so many Jupiter residents have not been to the top of the Jupiter Lighthouse. But it is well worth the trip. The tour is fun, but you have to be in pretty good shape, as the finale is the climb to the top of this landmark. Obviously, not handicapped accessible, and children will find the climb a little tough. However, you are not required to make the climb (some sit beneath the trees and wait for their friends/family to return).
See website below for most current information on admission fees and hours.

This was without one of the most beautifully kept lighthouse and surrounding property we toured during our 9 lighthouse trip thru Florida in August this year. The grounds are impeccably kept, lawn manicured, trees pruned, beautiful landscaping. And what can I say about our guide/volunteer...they know their lighthouse and they certainly know their history! It was truly a pleasure to get to see this piece of history and the spectacular views!

Light house is breathtaking at a distance and close up. Lots of steps so make sure you can do it. I only made it to the first landing them pooped out. Museum is small but does have a lot of items from the era. Lighthouse is on Coast Guard property so you have to stay with your guide. There;s a small cafe on property and a PX if your in the military. You spend about 2 hrs here.
