“Beautiful area and light house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I can't say anything bad about anything in Copper Harbor. Everything in the area is interesting and a sight to see. This light was very interesting and the area surrounding it was breathtaking. From the view of the lake, the huge rocks, the flowers and the people we met were unforgettable.

“A must-do if in Eagle Harbor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

It is easy to spend three or four hours going around to the different buildings, talking to the volunteers, taking pictures, and relaxing and watching the view. This gem of a place in this very small town makes the drive there worthwhile. It's interesting to hear/see things about how the lighthouse operated, to see some of the artifacts from that time, and to just imagine how life must have been for those to whom this extremely vital job was entrusted. This site is kept up by the Keweenaw County Historical Society, which has several different museums in the area. This one is the best, IMO.

Great volunteers and docents .. fascinating history of the shipwrecks in the area, and the tour of the lighthouse and keeper's
residence is very nice. So much history hear in a very well kept museum.

This lighthouse tour was wonderful.I love lighthouses.I never relived what hardships that the people had to endure running those lighthouses.It was well worth seeing it and hearing all about the lighthouse and the people that lived there.We have been there several times.
