Key West Light House Museum: Take in the Views from the Top

Located across from the Hemingway House, visit the Key West Lighthouse Museum and enjoy the best view of Key West from 85 feet high. Built in 1847 on one of the highest points in Key West, the Key West Lighthouse is the 15th oldest surviving lighthouse in the country.
Although it has been decommissioned since 1969, the lighthouse tower and Keeper's Quarters have been faithfully restored to its original grandeur and is open to the public for tours. Visit the museum filled with artifacts of the 1900's and stories of the keepers that lived there.
Climb the 88-step circular iron stairway to the top observation deck with sweeping views of Key West and the ocean. Watch the sun disappear as it sinks down into the Gulf.
