This is a lighthouse that is a working lighthouse. You have to be guided to the lighthouse with a volunteer guide. They diligently lock and unlock the gates that lead to the property and you have to stay on a brick path. Only one group can ascend and then descend at a time. There is also a museum and and...

The lighthouse tour is definitely worth a visit. Well informed volunteers provide a good history lesson about the Native Americans who lived at the site, as well as about the settlers. The grounds are beautiful, the lighthouse is well maintained, and the museum is interesting. There are 108 steps to reach the top of the lighthouse, with small landings every... More

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum has been a source of delight to us for 45 years. Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is perhaps 15 minutes north of our Marriott Ocean Point Villa. Today, following lunch, my wife has a list of Juno/Jupiter Shops which are "required shopping." We know exactly where Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is, and spend about... More

We live in Jupiter and drive by this a few times a week. It's a fantastic view from all angles. The park around the lighthouse is very nice and the museum is pretty cool as well. There is a lot of history with this iconic lighthouse!

This attraction has some wonderful features. The lighthouse has a guided tour, and that is the only way they allow you to access it. We had a group of about 20 people. The tour guide did a great job of keeping us together, and explaining the historical aspects of the grounds and lighthouse. You are able to take the stairs... More

The docent leading the tour provided a good history of the lighthouse, but the highlight was being able to climb the historic lighthouse and go out on the balcony at the top. The tour also included a tour of the Tindall Pioneer house and admission to the museum

Well done local museum. Take the 45 min. tour which includes a lesson about the lighthouse and information about the native Americans who lived in the area. The walk to the top of the lighthouse is easily doable. There are 4 stops on the way to the top on a circular staircase. I'd say 20-25 steps in each section. You... More

Taking in the visit to the Jupiter Lighthouse was an unanticipated surprise for us as we were not aware of this beautiful landmark. This was our first time to this lovely beachfront town. The tour is absolutely a must if visiting Jupiter. It is a worthwhile use of about and hour. Take in the ascent to the top of the... More

As an avid fan of all thing lighthouses, I absolutely loved this light. From the design to the location on the hill, just gorgeous! A plus is also being able to tour the grounds and climb it. Nothing beats the view from the top of a lighthouse.
