The museum is on the small side - but it is very nice. Great display of lenses for the lighthouses. My kids enjoyed the 2 videos.

My wife is a lighthouse "nut". She was hesitant at first to visit. Once we did visit, she was quite impressed with all the info we observed in the museum. Quite a bit of info about the lenses among other things.

Full range of exhibits related to lighthouses, Coast Guard, lifesaving service etc. Light house area has many lenses with working lights to explain how the optics work to focus and magnify the light.

We enjoyed the history packed museum and learned a lot about the different types of Fresnel lenses used in lighthouses.

Lighthouses are always nice for a quick stop. We thought this one was very "cute" (as my wife says) and it is in really good shape. The caretakers obviously take great pride in it. Beautiful views and our dog loved wandering the area.
