We had an okay time at the lighthouse. The museum and story behind the lighthouse are cute, but the lighthouse itself was sort of a disappointment. The stairs are typical spiral staircase, but there is no real way of gauging who's coming up or going down, so you can get caught in traffic and have to hug the side of... More

views are fantastic and the museum is very enlightening. history is very neat to learn. also the walk up the spiral staircase to the top is a little challenging but is worth the climb.

Very little to see. Not really worth your time unless you have nothing to do. Not something to repeat

Great view, a lot of stairs and not much testing space on the way up but well worth the hike up the stairs.

A beautiful lighthouse in the middle of Key West. The displays are nice and informative. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The displays are informative, but not boring. Worth a stop in to spend a little time and learn about the house and the lower Keys

Take the trek up the 88 steps and enjoy the view...it was quite a haul but worth it!! The displays and videos on the history of the lighthouses in the area was very interesting to read/see as well.

My daughter (8) and husband loved going up to the top of the lighthouse.. there aren't alot of tall buildings in Key West so the views are great!
