Reviewed 4 May 2018

This is the 1858 lighthouse museum that sits away from the shore of Lake Michigan. It is not the red and white lighthouse that is on the lakeshore. This one has green grass around it where you can safely walk if the weather is decent. Great information in the museum. Easy to get to.

This lighthouse is open to the public, there is an admission charge. Inside are lots of exhibits that are about the lighthouse and history of the area. It's the lighthouse that was built in 1858.

We walked the boardwalk all the way to the lighthouse. Went up the stairs to the front of it. Its a gorgeous view and a lovely walk. Shore birds are starting to appear. You van see the Indiana Lakeshore Dunes from here.

This is a great view into the past of this entire area, not only the shipping industry, but the daily life of folks living there. Great docent to enlighten you on the contents and history.
