We walked the lighthouse to the top and the view was spectacular. The price was reasonable $10 for adults and $5 for children which included the museum, lighthouse and maritime center. We loved the gift shop and purchased several unique gifts for family and friends.

Oh my, what can I say? This place was amazing! We did the trolley tour and visited the lighthouse all the way to the top, the view was from the top was spectacular. The was much history to see and hear. The price was reasonable which included museum, lighthouse and maritime center a few blocks away. We went to gift shop and bought soveniers. The island itself was beautiful and a great place to visit for special occasions especially weddings and anniversaries.

We enjoyed the Lighthouse Museum. We went up to the top of the lighthouse. Great views from the top. Enjoyed the interesting history in the light keepers house museum. Had a room set up with historical information on the building and restoration of the lighthouse. Another room set up with information about Eugenia Price. And then the upstairs is set up as a replica of what the house would have looked like in the past. Interesting artifacts and history.

It is a long climb, and I enjoyed the museum. The park next to the lighthouse is very cool for kids!

This was a great lighthouse to climb to the top (only 129 steps) and the museum was nice. Only $10 per person to climb the lighthouse, visit the museum, and get into the maritime center that is down the road.
