Came with several family members to see the lighthouse! This was my idea and to my dismay realized that you couldn't even get near it unless you did the tour!!! I have been to many lighthouses and have always been able to walk around and see it. You only had to pay to go inside. Doesn't really tell you on... More

With the benefit of a clear, warm Saturday afternoon we set out with our friends to explore this landmark museum. As a newer, part year resident of Florida, this venue offered some interesting insights into the area's ancient & less distant past. Included was the state's first house called a Cracker House moved to this location for preservation. For us... More

We stopped with intention to your the facility but the $12 entrance fee was a bit steep for my budget! $24 for the wife and I was a bit much for another lighthouse, end of story!

We had an 8 month old so we couldn't go on the tour because there is a height minimum of 48 in. We went into the gift shop it was typical but busy. We stepped into the museum. We were greeted and I asked if we could get any closer to the lighthouse since we couldn't go on the tour... More

Who knew that people have been living near the Jupiter inlet for 5000 years? So much interesting history. The views from the lighthouse are magnificent. Our guide was great. He encouraged my 83 year old mother to try the climb and she made it. No problem. Take time to go through the museum. Very informative.

It was a beautiful day so we decided to check this place out. We were immediately greeted by Becky with a big smile and friendly attitude. She asked us where we were from and answered some of our questions. Her bubbly disposition made us feel very welcomed and excited about our tour. Our tour guide (Bruce) was just as great.... More

Did lighthouse tour with a friend. Docent was knowledgeable and interesting. I had driven by the lighthouse many times. It was fun to finally go up to the top. It was well worth the effort.

We recently toured the Jupiter Lighthouse for the first time. The property is owned by the government so groups are required to stay together as you are led through a locking gate. Our guide was a little over the top in counting and recounting our group of 24 and making us stay together. There are 100 steps in the lighthouse... More
