My wife and I went in the off season. The ranger gave us a good presentation, though we couldn't climb the lighthouse due to the off-season hours. The museum was good, good information and presentation displays.
It was a windy day when we went to the lighthouse and almost deserted save for two others. I got some great pics to remember it by. I loved learning about it at my own pace. We also stopped at the little sailor's cemetery near...More
Seems that it is not fully staffed in the off season so you can’t climb to the top of the lighthouse. We were disappointed- the grounds themselves otherwise were nicely kept but not much else to see...
We went in November and you can't go up then (not enough staffing for the light tourist season). There weren't a lot of people there but the beach had plenty.

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. We have 4 young children and it wouldv'e cost us $48 to clmb so we skipped the climb, and found the movie quite satisfactory as a supplementary experience - and its free!
