  • Great experience and amazing view! Very informative. The gentlemen at the bottom and top were very helpful. I am so thankful this is open to the public.
  • Very cool and they tell you all about the history of the tower and what they used it for during the war.
  • Historically amazing, a lot of great historical information. a veteran was there to answer all the questions that we had.

  • Unique part of our history. Good views and each landing has displayed items from Cape May area service members.
