This is just one of those places that you have to see. I love all things historic so to me it is almost like you are there when you see places built and made the way twin lights is

This is a true Historical Treasure not to be missed. You can climb the winding steps to the top of one of the towers. Views are amazing! The museum is excellent with everything well presented. There is a small gift shop, but no food service. Take a picnic lunch and sit outdoors to enjoy this amazing, peaceful location on one of the highest points along the Atlantic coast.

I've been to the lighthouse several times during my childhood but wanted to see if it held up to the great memories I had of it. It most certainly did! There was a lovely and informative museum with pictures in the bottom that I found interesting. It gave lots of historical information on the area. It was an added bonus that I was still able to go to the top of the lighthouse and see for miles around. Definitely a great photo spot. Got a little lost on my way up, but not so much so that I was unable to find my way back out again.

Any time of the year- open on Sundays, you cannot beat the price (donations accepted). Great view of the entrance to NY Harbor, Sandy Hook, etc. Great museum displays of the history of the lighthouse, light keepers, local area, the wireless telegraph, etc, small gift shop; ample parking, friendly staff.

Road is steep and narrow. Don't go up unless it is open because there is no turn around if the gate is shut. Very interesting.
