Well worth the price of admission. We spent twice as long here as anticipated because it was so awesome. Amazing views, lots of informative displays. Access to Lake Superior. Will definitely return if we are ever back in this part of the country.
Well worth the $10/person to get in. Absolutely beautiful views of the water and of the lighthouse! Several buildings are open for guided or self-guided tours and there are actors dressed for the times. Only problem we ran into was that guided tours ended at 5:00 and there were no signs stating that. We arrived at 5:20 and waited 20 minutes for a tour before we realized there weren't any more for the day.
