“Really enjoyed this exhibit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Really enjoyed learning about what life was like on these lighthouses. Some of the exhibits were showing their wear, but it didn't interfere with the learning. I loved going all the way to the top!

“neat to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The view from the top of the lighthouse is worth the climb. It was nice to see how they actually lived inside.
