Inexpensive day trip - $6 per person. You are able to climb the lighthouse but its a spiral stairwell with over 200 steps! There are displays of 1900's housing and artifacts. Nice place to visit. Total time to visit is about 2 hours.

Beautiful views and interesting history. We climbed it in July, and were thankful for the breeze when we reached the top. Definitely worth it.

If you ever wanted to know about lighthouses and how they were maintained, a visit here will provide a very unique glimpse behind the scene. Plus the view from the top of the lighthouse is absolutely stunning.

A beautiful lighthouse with surrounding museum buildings. It is a bit of a climb to the top but the view is well worth it.
