Really enjoyed the museum and recordings of the many keepers that worked at the lighthouse. It is right across the street from Hemingway House so very easy to see both places in a morning or afternoon.

This is a great place to visit, immaculately maintained, interesting history as you wander though the keepers' quarters, then a chance to climb to the top & see amazing views all over Key West & the Gulf

This lighthouse, and the lighthouse keepers' house, are very well maintained. The lighthouse offers a super view of Key West. We then toured the lighthouse keepers' house adjacent to the lighthouse. It is now a museum and had much interesting history. The grounds are nicely...More

The restored light house and keepers home, offers a lot of history about the area and light keeping service, which ultimately became part of the Coast Guard. It's 88 steps to the top of the light house, but the view is worth it.

I find Lighthouses are magical places to visit. This particular lighthouse and keepers quarters museum was certainly worth the cost of admission. Besides the panoramic views the amount of history to be acquired was excellent. The keepers quarters was restored with original artifacts. Went early...More

Key West clean up crews did a great job after Irma. You'd never know what happened only a few short months ago as you enjoy the view from the lighthouse.

The view is great from the top as you can get your bearings on Key West. It looks short from the bottom but feels taller once you climb the steps. Make sure you go to the root trees to take a few pictures.

We climbed to the top of the light house and had a wonderful view of the Key West area. Well worth the price of admission. Viewed the museum house as well.

This is the highest point in Key West. After 88 steps, you can see a 360 degree view of the island. It is definitely worth the time to visit.

I believe it was $10 a person. However, I am a Coast Guard Veteran and they admitted me and my family for free.

Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on. I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.
