  • You can see the living quarters of the light house master and walk to the top of the tower. You can tour this in 30 minutes. It's worth the visit and it's a short walk from the aquarium and the other ...  more »
  • The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is located in a park behind the Aquarium's hiding something. This peculiar building is well worth a visit. The story of this Lighthouse is illustrated very well and easy to understand. A kind of park guards are like to supplementary information. Free admission. Donations are gladly accepted.

  • I have been inside, seen it. How can I get a stamp for my log, just recently joined the lighthouse society; does anyone know? How do I get that info? J Torockio
  • Associated with the Preservation Society and Historic Ships, the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is a free (donations appreciated though!) attraction situated near the National Aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Ascend the staircase and you'll enter the second floor of what one was a manned screw-pile lighthouse built at the mouth of the Patapsco River (literally, SCREWED right into the water's floor). There's plenty of information about the history and significance of the structure itself, as well as Baltimore's extensive use as a seaport. The staffer there at the time, Jamaal, was very friendly and happy to answer questions. If you're in the Inner Harbor and looking for a quick, 15-30-minute diversion, definitely stop by the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse!
  • Quaint historical destination. A great visit to the interior or for a quick stop by on the easy to get to pier right next to the National Aquarium.
  • A very different kind of lighthouse... nice to visit.
  • Historical , but plain
