Had an excellent time at the site. The tour was excellent, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The museum had a lot of interesting articles from all over. The property was excellent and my kids thought it was great too.

Bring your camera! Purchase your ticket for the lighthouse when you arrive then visit the museum while you wait for a lighthouse tour to begin. Free parking is available.

They take you on a trip back in time 5000 years ago and back through the ages to today. The highlight is climbing the 140 steps up to the top of the light house tower. The best view in the area. They also have sunset tours and occasionally moonrise tours on a full moon. We have been back many times... More

My family of 5 visited the lighthouse and museum hoping for a quick tour and trip up the lighthouse. Lighthouse is on a military area and access is restricted so you need to stay with the tour and guide the entire time. We were told tour would last about 45 minutes. Unfortunately, we got a tour guide that wanted to... More

Tour was nice but a bit long (over an hour). Friendly staff & very nice gift shop. Climbing up the lighthouse requires better foot wear than flip flops.

Any time I am near a lighthouse that can be climbed I take advantage of the opportunity. An added bonus of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is a guided tour by people who are well versed in the history of the lighthouse. The tour cost was $12 and well worth it. The climb to the top is not difficult but the steps... More

Jupiter Lighthouse is all you expect when traveling to see a lighthouse. Waterway view out to inlet, easy access, lots of parking, well maintained grounds, seasonal activities, popular wedding location except hot summers. Good gift shop. Close to local restaurants. Add it to your list. Only thing it lacks is the rock cliffs of the NE.

A visit to our lighthouse is a must see for any company coming to visit. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable. This place has a lot of history, which is unusual for south Florida. The view from the top is outstanding. Be sure to visit the settlers cabin, and take the time to see the museum. It is well done... More

What can you say about a trip back in time. The history of this site goes back 5000 years. The guides are knowledgeable and the view from the top of the light is unparalleled. The Lighthouse lens is a national treasure. Don't miss this experience.
