  • Nice museum full of great lake memorabilia, focus on eastern portion of Lake Erie. The lighthouse is worth the effort to get to the top. Great views of harbor. Be warned it is a steep spiral staircase...  more »
  • Interesting to walk around the museum and up into the lighthouse. Disappointed we could not get to the top of the lighthouse to look out after paying to climb it.  more »

  • Climbing the lighthouse's spiraling metal staircase, you can imagine the thousands of times people walked there before, working to save the lives of sailors and passengers traveling the lake. Interesting collection of local artifacts; I would have liked to see more explanatory plaques. Great views and friendly staff.
  • It's quaint and interesting. Its also right next to the beach/lake area which is a beautiful sight. ❤
  • Great local museum. Very very small, but a bit of it is the front of an old ship. Unique place.
  • Friendly staff, nice lighthouse that you can climb, great prices, and a Brea hhh nearby!
  • Fascinating building but not accessible year round I hope to see it during the tourist season.
