Only 88 steps to great views
Aug 2021 • Couples
We have gone in a few light houses and this was the smallest…..which was good. The information and displays are great. My husband talked a long time with one of the workers and he was very informative. We were able to pick out certain buildings around the top decking.

Even though it is 88 steps up, it is worth the view. You will see a lot of history here. Interesting to see how it worked. Also, I don't think there are a lot of lighthouses that you can get into so if you can, do it. You can see it all in less than an hour. It's across from the Hemingway House.

A great view of the island!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Great view at the top, you see the island completely around. An informative museum with some old items from when the lighthouse was in service.

A little pricey but an amazing view

A little pricey yes but a spectacular view! The staff was very nice and helpful. Not something you need to do more than once but it was fun to do on our first trip to town!

Nice piece of history
Jul 2021
Lighthouse has a lot of history! Walls are 4 feet thick! Was fun climbing to the stop for the spectacular view of Key West and coastline. Also, very nice to tour the house were the lightkeepers stayed. We learned a lot about life back in the day when we needed full time guides watching from the lighthouse.

Interesting lighthouse
Jul 2021
It was a nice stop with excellent views of Key West. However, the 88 step spiral staircase left a lot to be desired. Going up wasn't as bad as coming down and it was tight passing people going in the opposite direction. We stopped at the air conditioned lighthouse museum on the premises and watched the movie to recuperate.

Great view from the top

Enjoy a wonderful view of the island once you climb to the very top of the lighthouse. The keepers quarters museum are also very interesting.

Great view
Jun 2021 • Family
Great view from the top of the lighthouse. You can see the whole island and information at the top shows what you are seeing. Admission includes visiting the light keeper’s house with historical artifacts. Nice attached gift shop also. A little pricey for admission.

Not a lot to see…
Jun 2021
You’re paying to walk up 88 steps to get a better picture of Key West. In my opinion, take a picture from the gate and move on. The entry cost was not worth the 20 minutes of your time that you’re going to spend there.
