Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, Jupiter

4.5
The site of one of Florida's tallest lighthouses, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum sits on a hill once mistaken for a Native American burial mound. Completed in 1860, the lighthouse stands 32 m (105 ft) tall, its light visible from as far as 46 km (29 mi) away. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, the lighthouse offers tours to the top of its tower for panoramic views of the surrounding area. Before you climb to the top, visit the history museum located in a building used for naval housing during World War II. Be sure you're wearing comfortable shoes before you begin the ascent up the lighthouse's steep stairs.

  • We had a great experience while visiting the lighthouse and museum. The museum is on the small side but features some cool artifacts from the area. The view from the lighthouse is beautiful, definitely worth the walk to the top but on the scary side if you're afraid of heights. Lastly, the staff was very nice and willing to assist in anything we needed.
  • Great place to visit to acquire knowledge of local history, local plants and wildlife. Very interesting and has the benefit of fabulous views. Climbing the steps up to the lighthouse is not possible for those who are wheelchair bound or elderly. There's approximately 150 steep steps to the top.
  • It's pretty and I wanted to take pics, but it's locked off to public due to the fact it's on federal land. Only seen on tours they offer and the tours price is way too much maybe half of what they charge might work . I wouldn't pay that . The only way to get a pics is drive around to the other side of the water and take the pics from that distance. It's a very small light house . So my excitement over going to see this light house is over . Not interested anymore. Not public friendly.
  • What a pretty setting. I was here for a wedding so didn't get to actually go in the museum and lighthouse but just walking around was beautiful. Great for pictures or a quick tourist stop! Love the big banyan tree by the water.
  • Second time coming here during a visit to Florida. This place is great place to see with beautiful scenery while learning about some of Florida's historic past from the knowledgeable staff members. There are many things to see and do in the area, like Loggerhead Marinelife Center, but this is a worthwhile addition to any trip near here with a couple of hours to spend.
