views are fantastic and the museum is very enlightening. history is very neat to learn. also the walk up the spiral staircase to the top is a little challenging but is worth the climb.

Don't get me wrong from the title of my review. This lighthouse is beautiful. It's $10 to get in and walk around the grounds, which are are pretty and well kept. the views from the top are great.

Great view, a lot of stairs and not much testing space on the way up but well worth the hike up the stairs.

A beautiful lighthouse in the middle of Key West. The displays are nice and informative. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The displays are informative, but not boring. Worth a stop in to spend a little time and learn about the house and the lower Keys

Take the trek up the 88 steps and enjoy the view...it was quite a haul but worth it!! The displays and videos on the history of the lighthouses in the area was very interesting to read/see as well.

My wife was about to die of heatstroke upon walking in and kudos to the lady running the place - got her water immediately and probably saved us a trip to the ER. This is not a super tall lighthouse but you still get a great view from there.

If you can handle the spiral staircase, you will get wonderful panoramic views of Key West. The keeper's house is interesting (self-guided) and we found the volunteers in the gift shop to be very friendly and helpful too.
