My wife is a lighthouse "nut". She was hesitant at first to visit. Once we did visit, she was quite impressed with all the info we observed in the museum. Quite a bit of info about the lenses among other things.

Full range of exhibits related to lighthouses, Coast Guard, lifesaving service etc. Light house area has many lenses with working lights to explain how the optics work to focus and magnify the light.

Lighthouses are always nice for a quick stop. We thought this one was very "cute" (as my wife says) and it is in really good shape. The caretakers obviously take great pride in it. Beautiful views and our dog loved wandering the area.

Nice place to stop and take a break if you are driving the coast or are just interested in Maritime items. Very nice museum. Enough information to be interesting. Takes maybe 1/2 hour (depending on your pace), to go through. Worth the stop.
