Overview
More
A visit to the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum is more than you might expect! Climb 219 steps for a breathtaking view of both St. Aug and the beaches. Or go below to discover a 1782 British shipwreck. Take guided tours, free with admission, on the hour 11 am - 3 pm. Check out the exhibits in the Keepers' House and Maritime Archaeology Center. Visitors also encounter ghosts on the nighttime, Dark of the Moon tour, which is the only St. Augustine ghost tour that gets you inside the Lighthouse tower. Book in advance because it fills up fast, and book mid-week to avoid crowds. For general admission purchase your tickets on-line in advance w/coupon code LH15 to get a 15% discount off regular admission prices. Or join as a family member for discounts to local attractions, and 20% off in the Museum shop as well as free admission all year long. Discover New Heights at the St. Augustine Lighthouse where a breathtaking view awaits and you make a difference to our non-profit museum.

This is nice stop with things to see. The grounds are very pretty--it is a little pricey. Worth a stop but may be price prohibitive for families.

The Saint Augustine Lighthouse is great to visit! Prices are decent and they have newer buildings such as a cafe and archaeological building. Lightkeeper's house is fun to walk through and a cool break from the heat. The climb of 219 stairs is a hike....More
