This place has guided history tours. The best part is the view from the lighthouse, so gorgeous and romantic.

Loved the tour, the narrated history of Jupiter and the Native Indians in the area. The view from the lighthouse is unbelievable/priceless! The museum also brings everything together as you can see some of the items spoken about during the tour!

Great location! Beautiful view! Good for teenagers. Can't visit the lighthouse unless you're part of a tour. Very interesting museum. Nice perspective of the origins of the Jupiter area.
