An easy walk from the end of the shopping strip and pier brings you to the lighthouse which is impressive to see. Grounds are well maintained. We wander around the grounds but did not climb the Lighthouse or go intomthe museum.

Stopped on the way to fort frederick, nice restored lighthouse and small history museum. Located in a tourist area of b&b's but nice area for waterfront park and fishing pier

We saw the lighthouse on our Ghost tour and went back the next day. The movie, museum, lighthouse and tour guides were fun and knowledgeable. We very much enjoyed our time there but missed seeing the ghost!

We took our 3 & 5 year old kids here, and they really enjoyed climbing to the top of the lighthouse. The museum wasn't as interesting or interactive for them, but the climbing to the top of the light house got them into it. Great...More

A nice museum, but a tad expensive for what you get. We climbed to the top of the lighthouse which gave a good view of the island.

Great way to pass an hour of time and you will learn a little history about the area. Inexpensive but fun.

While we weren't brave enough to climb to the top of the lighthouse, it was a very interesting place to visit. Be sure to watch the film.

A must see if you visit the Island. Pick a time when the photography will be great, early morning or evening. Museum was interesting. Scenic

Beautiful working lighthouse. Tour is interesting and you can climb to the top for a gorgeous view of the island.

It's always fun to learn the history of where we are staying. We took our 6 year old niece, who is in love with lighthouses, through this tour. Fun to learn about why and how a lighthouse works. The view from the top is gorgeous!...More
