“Lighthouse in St Michaels”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

My wife and I visited St Michaels, Md in June. During our stay, we visited the Maritaime Museum where the lighthouse resides. We enjoyed being able to actually enter the lighthouse and see the representation of the quarters of where the crew actually stayed. The view from the top was actually pretty amazing as well.

“Nice”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Cute little lighthouse to go in to and see how the light keepers lived. Also, even though it's not a tall one, scenery was nice. An interesting place. Part of the Maritime Museum. And not a lot of steps to the top.

“Lighthouse at Maritime Museum”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

This lighthouse built in 1870 and identified the treacherous waters near Hooper's sland. It was replaced by an automatic signal in 1966 and this lighthouse was moved to become part of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael's Md.. We visited on May 3 , 2012. The lighthouse was closed to visitors. We could ascend the steps and look in through the windows, to see the small living quarters of the lighthouse keeper. We learned that it can be rented fpr overnight stays by organizations such as scout troups.
