Our family enjoyed the lighthouse. The location including parking is very accessible for the lighthouse and North Beach. The ticket ladies were so friendly and nice. The walk up the lighthouse is not too bad. There is a landing every 25 steps to look out...More

A friend and I arrived after the Lighthouse museum had closed. We never really saw anything but the outside. Still, the drive to Tybee island was beautiful and the area around the lighthouse was wonderful to see. We got some pictures and that was about...More

I love lighthouses, so I am not hard to please. I thought that it was very pretty and it was set up nicely with other previous buildings as well. You do climb 178 (or 187) or something stairs in spiral staircase, so be prepared if...More

The climb was doable but stifling hot already at 9:30 in the morning. A bonus was seeing a container ship from the top on it's way to Savannah. The keepers house was amazing. Watch the short film first for a better understanding of the premesis....More

The staff offers low admission prices to be able to climb 7 flights of stairs to see the majesty of Tybee Island. If you're in for a grueling workout, the result will be worth it. You can see the grounds of the museum and the...More

Staff and volunteers were very helpful! I didn’t climb the lighthouse, but the rest in my group took the 178 step climb to the top. Breathtaking view and small cottage tour included- loved looking at the family photos from past keepers. Leave your book bags...More

Offers a nice view from the top, but 170+ steps is a bit much for the smaller ones. There isn't much to keep them interested either so I recommend only adults and teens take this tour. Best if you have an interest in history or...More
