Built out of cast iron in 1848. It has withstood storm after storm. Hurricane Katrina did severe damage to the lower third & it wasn’t reopened until 2010. The only way to be able to climb the stairs, is to go on a guided tour...More
Even though we were only able to view the lighthouse from the outside, we still enjoyed visiting the lighthouse. I believe we read after the fact that they only have tours at 9:00 and 9:15am. Thankfully there were placards out near the parking area which...More

The latest information that I have is that tours are Monday - Saturday (weather permitting) 9, 9:15 and 9:30. Admission: Adults $5.00 and Children 2-12 $2.00. No reservation needed. Their phone number is 228-374-3105. There is a Biloxi Visitors Center close to the lighthouse. It is a nice place to visit. They have all kinds of pamphlets and information as well as a movie. We love the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Unless we are staying in a condo; we almost always stay at the smoke free Palace Casino. The buffet is GREAT and our rooms are always GREAT as well.
