We took a little 'jaunt' here from our vacation house just to get the kids out of the house for a short time. We brought a picnic lunch, which we enjoyed in the shade at a picnic table right near the lighthouse. Then we walked...More

This is a great place to visit. Signs to get you there are well placed. We had a full tour with a knowledgeable person who answered all our questions. The museum is well maintained and exhibits are informative. The on-site boat museum is wonderful. Families...More

A nice stroll on Light House Road takes you to a pleasant ending. There is a beach to visit. Park benches for those to rest. Pinic tables for eating. A museum near by to visit. Nicely taken care of. Worth a visit.

This was a great visit for the kids the morning before a wedding. They loved the pier, water and the lighthouse and park area. It is very clean, well kept and organized. A great way to spend a few hours

This is a small waterman's museum featuring the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers house. There were several very interesting exhibits in the static museum, as well. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse but the steep stairs are not for the faint of...More

Pay the entrance fee to enjoy the small (but informative) museum and climb up the lighthouse. Do not miss their boat exhibit (separate building) which is excellent. Docents do a great job. Lovely park and pier offer charming water views. Interesting interpretation about a Nazi...More

I agonized (I really did, I take these reviews very seriously) over giving this attraction "only" a "3" -- this little place has much going for it. Basically you've got a stubby little lighthouse with a moderately interesting history, the keeper's house, a tiny visitor...More
