Hi Yes there is a fee for the lighthouse. It costs $10. to go in the lighthouse & museum. There are 80-90 steps to the top, where you can go outside and walk around the top of the lighthouse. It is a narrow stairway with people going up & down. The lighthouse is located on Whitehead street across from the Hemingway House.
