Stopping by the Marblehead Lighthouse is definitely worth getting off the beaten path. The lighthouse itself is nicely restored as is the keeper's dwelling. They both offer a window into life at a Lake Erie lighthouse and the role that Lake Erie played in commerce,...More

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the view from the Lighthouse park area every time I visit. Unfortunately, I should have checked when off season begins as the lighthouse and historical society were closed when we visited. I've seen both before but the girlfriend...More

Located on Lake Erie and a lot of history here. The Lighthouse keepers house is small with a lot of interesting facts. The boathouse is fairly new and well worth the visit to it. Restored rescue boat was a seven year project that looks awesome....More

We had a fun day out at the lighthouse and museum with ages from 4 to 67! We climbed the 77 steps to the top ($3 ages 6 and up) and enjoyed the beautiful view. The kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks and we had...More

This small museum is located right next to the lighthouse. You can cover museum in 10-20 minutes. Nice explanations about the lighthouse and keepers. Museum is free and staffed by helpful volunteers.

The museum is a cute, but small building. There are three rooms that tell about the light house, local men, and an art display. The best part was talking to the staff at the gift shop. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. As a charm...More
