88 steps to the top, but what a view! They have small signs on the outside observation deck pointing out landmarks. Very interesting museum.

Across from the Hemingway House - an interesting visit especially as the lighthouse is not on the water. There are excellent life like statues throughout the grounds. The stairs to the top of the lighthouse provide a nice view of Key west but there is a far better view from the top of the Crowne Plaza Hotel after 3:00 P.M. when they open the elevators to the public -- added attraction of a bar. If you are not a lighthouse affectionado + just want the view -- pass on this and go to the hotel

The keepers' house is has photos, drawings and explanations of how the keepers ran the lighthouse back in the day. There are some artifacts from when children lived here and that appealed to my children. The climb up the lighthouse is manageable and provides a lovely view of Key West.

If anything climb the lighthouse and see all of KW ! Not recommended for anyone with health problems or large people. It is a very narrow staircase and limited room on top.

There is a $10 admission per person which is pricey, but it has great views. Since it was a beautiful clear day my boyfriend wanted to take some pictures since it has the best views of Key West. He paid the $10 and I waited outside. The pictures were terrific, but worth the $10 probably not. I certainly would not pay for two or a family.
