“Fascinating stories”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We went shortly before closing and didn't get a chance to stay as long as we would have liked. There is some amazing history in Key West and the museum did a great job in presenting it in a fun way. And of course, climbing up to the top of the lighthouse is a must!!

“Well Worth the Admission”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Great place. Climb to the top of the lighthouse, go outside and walk around. They have done a great job with displays explaining what you are looking as you gaze across Key West. The museum is small but has some great displays.

We had two teenagers and everyone enjoyed it.

“Great view”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

So glad we did the lighthouse on this trip. 88 stairs didn't sound like much, but I was huffing and puffing by the top. The view is worth the effort though.

“Good if you have never seen a lighthouse”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

The Key West lighthouse is not a tall as some othes in Florida, but if you have never been in one, its a good experience. The whole site takes about 30 minutes to see and the cost is $5 pp. If you are in the area, its worth the time.

“Pretty Cool View”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

The lighthouse was pretty fantastic and the view was amazing from the top. Only wish there would have been an actual goat taking care of the landscaping!
