The restored light house and keepers home, offers a lot of history about the area and light keeping service, which ultimately became part of the Coast Guard. It's 88 steps to the top of the light house, but the view is worth it.

I find Lighthouses are magical places to visit. This particular lighthouse and keepers quarters museum was certainly worth the cost of admission. Besides the panoramic views the amount of history to be acquired was excellent. The keepers quarters was restored with original artifacts. Went early on a clear sunny day. Not sure if it would be advisable to bring young children. The gift shop is filled with more than T-shirts and post cards. Can easily fill up 2 to three hours.

Worth an hour or so. Keepers quarters now a mini museum giving an idea of the keepers lifestyle, 7 days a week, year around.....glamorous not apt description, u understand how hard it was.
Lighthouse itself very cool, view awesome, the climb hard for many as you would expect, with only one platform to rest without blocking others ascending and descending.

Key West clean up crews did a great job after Irma. You'd never know what happened only a few short months ago as you enjoy the view from the lighthouse.

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.
