Came here with my mom. Wasn't sure if we were going to get to take the tour as the rain was coming in. Our tour guides were great and very informative. I can't remember their names, but it was the same name and had 4 letters! I can't believe we made it to the top! The gift shop was lovely.

Took our students to visit the lighthouse today. Staff greeted us with specific direction that showed organization and preparation. There were 105 steps up the lighthouse. Not too bad, as there were landings along the way with open windows for fresh air. Once at the top, the 360 view was breathtaking, even when you are afraid of heights. We then... More

Just so much fun to climb the stairs with my kids. A little hard and tight but worth doing it. My kids enjoyed it and learning a little history as well. Was the perfect balance for a fun afternoon with them.

This is a great lighthouse that is well maintained and you can go all the way to the top. There is a Museum and a Gift Shop, snack bar and if you bring a fishing rod you might get lucky as it's on the Jupiter Inlet. There are all kinds of fish swimming in the inlet and many boats. I... More

This is not a tour that will take the length of the day but it is definitely worth going. The grounds are beautiful, there is a small museum and gift shop at the intercostal waterside and beach that are free. The light house tour itself costs a little $ and is a good amount of stairs to the top, so... More

Great place to learn about local history, Pirates and local area. Right on beach. We did tour of over 200 steps up lighthouse and then went swimming and had lunch. It was perfect setting for our kids and scout troop.

Get a great view atop the Jupiter lighthouse while learning some history of the area. Go between low-high tide to get the great turquoise water.

This was my first visit to Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. The museum was small but packed with a lot of information, artifacts and a short movie about the building of the lighthouse. The tour guides were good and friendly. The walk from the museum to the lighthouse was short. The lighthouse has 105 steps to climb so be prepare.... More
