A glimps into the past of how the lighthouse keeper and his family lived. Make sure you park in the lighthouse museum lot and not the pay to park lot.
Never saw the inside, as I was there as part of the Critz Tybee Island Run Fest 2013. Scenic little beach neighborhood nearby (part of the 5K course). There is a campsite not far form the Lighthouse.
Visited the lighthouse. Climbed the 178 steps to the top. Great view, but the day was cold and cloudy, so the ocean looked kind of grey. Lighthouse guide is the grandson of the last lighthouse keeper, so you can get lots of stories about the life of the lighthouse family.
The light house and battery are neat for picture taking. We did not have time to go up the lighthouse or visit the museum but would recommend it. We will definitely spend the time on a next visit.
After some maneuvering and a bunch of turns we made it to the lighthouse; which was nice. Be sure to pay the parking and leaving the ticket your vehicle before getting a parking ticket. Saw someone else receive one almost immediately. You may also drive around the museum and park close to the beach.
The view at the top of the lighthouse is beautiful, especially to see water on all sides. The museum provided a lot of detailed information about the lighthouse's history.
Although the climb to the top was challenging (more so than other lighthouses I've visited), the view from the top was absolutely worth the climb - I climbed it twice. The museum across the street is worth the visit too.
Really enjoyed this little lighthouse museum. The grounds are very nicely maintained. You can go into the old light keepers house that has contents donated by one of the original last light keepers family. There is a nice little documentary film as well. The best is that you can still go up into the lighthouse to the top and walk... More
Very picturesque lighthouse and museum on Tybee Island. A lot of history and some great photo ops. Well worth the short drive from Savannah.
