It was a wonderful adventure learning about the history of Montauk. The museum gave history facts that my husband and I were not aware of it. It was very interesting. A magical feeling to know you are at the tip of Long Island.

If your in Montauk, you have to visit the historic Montauk Lighthouse. Interesting...But, to get your money's worth, be sure and go early in the day. Parking charge and admission fees are way out of line for what you get.

Love this place! We come out every year and always enjoy and learn something new. Walking around, talking to people and staff. Hearing their stories. Take a walk down to the water and sit, so serene and peaceful. Climb to the top if you can!...More

Very pretty area with easy hiking trails leading to the oceans edge. A little disappointed that you have to pay to get in the lighthouse.

The light house is the highpoint of you visit to Montauk State Park. Coastal views from both the base of the lighthouse and the top are outstanding. In season there is a bus available from Montauk. Off season you will need to drive or take...More

We understand that to enter the lighthouse, there would be a fee but now you have to pay a fee before you can even get close to the lighthouse to take a picture. Very disappointed.
