  • Such a well done renovation. It looks brand new. The museum was interesting, informative and original. The lighthouse was wonderfully restored. I didn’t climb the 200+ steps but there were many...

  • Had such a great visit! The lighthouse is so well taken care or we climbed all the way to the top! Its quite a climb but worth it and there are many spots to sit for a break on the way up.. the views are absolutely immaculate and all of the additional exhibits and mini museums were awesome!
  • This was a lovely impromptu stop! The views from the top were gorgeous and expansive and the climb up (although nearly 219 steps) was very manageable due to the benches you can sit on the way up and how well made the stairs are. The building has just been recently renovated and it looks amazing! Each of the exhibits in the separate side buildings were also meticulously maintained and informative. We spoke with several staff members who were extremely friendly and helpful. Overall an incredible place to visit and affordable! Come support historical St. Augustine
