Hands on. You can climb the 200 plus steps to the viewing deck and amazing views of the surrounding areas. Historic, a museum and gift shop on site.

“Great Lighthouse and Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a great place to visit. They have one of the best lighthouse and museum exhibits we seen and maybe the best display of Fresnel Lens I seen. It is a step back in time and a refresher course in the role the lighthouses and the lighthouse keepers and their family have played in our nations history. Don't miss this if you are in Daytona Beach and have any time to spare.
