Hi Marta - Go to the "Double Lightkeeper's House" - on the 1st floor, in an air-conditioned small theater, they show a movie on demand which has a young park ranger walking from the bottom to the top of the light-house, explaining a lot of the history and showing you the views you would see if you climbed.
