It was an experience. Our boys even enjoyed and they are only 3 and 4. They walked all the way to the top and back down. They even went outside when they got to the top.

Love their gift shop. Awesome books on local history and I always find fun purses here surprisingly.

The hike up to the top is well worth the effort. Beautiful views of the surrounding areas. Don't buy the combo ticket for the Maritime Museum unless you have children who enjoy interactive exhibits.

My wife and I have climbed lighthouses in NY, SC & FL. This was our first in GA and it the best we've been to. The museum staff was extremely knowledgeable about the lighthouse, its keepers, the history and the area. The museum itself was top-notch including period pieces of the different era's of the keepers and the rich history of the island and the lighthouse. Don't pass up the video, its ties it all together. If your into lighthouses put this on your must see list.
