The lighthouse is a crazy sightseeing, it's typical for Key West. The sightseeing is like the peoples who are living in Key West, humorous, crazy and friendly ;-))

Small building nicely kept. Interesting statue sculpture of people on benches. Shaded for relief from sun. Not too busy.

It's a very doable lighthouse. The grounds are small but well kept. The Keeper's Quarter's is interesting, with an informative short film on repeat. It also has a very nice gift shop.

This was right near the Hemingway house which we visited. It doesn't take much time to tour the lighthouse and museum, but it's an interesting stop.

I believe it was $10 a person. However, I am a Coast Guard Veteran and they admitted me and my family for free.

Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on. I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.
