“Great view & some history”

Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum
Ranked #29 of 130 things to do in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2018

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.

We stopped here while walking to the Hemmingway House. It was a quick 45 minute tour. There are 88 steps to the top of the lighthouse, but you can also opt to only tour the lighthouse keeper's house. Military, AAA, & student discounts are available, although it's only about $10 to begin with. There was a guide in the house to answer questions. The view from the top of the lighthouse is excellent. The small gift shop had a nice selection of items made in Key West, children's books, etc., not just the usual souvenirs.

Loved the view from the top. Four cruise ships in port to see in the horizon. If you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all but worth the $10
