The site of one of Florida's tallest lighthouses, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum sits on a hill once mistaken for a Native American burial mound. Completed in 1860, the lighthouse stands 32 m (105 ft) tall, its light visible from as far as 46 km (29 mi) away. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, the lighthouse offers tours to the top of its tower for panoramic views of the surrounding area. Before you climb to the top, visit the history museum located in a building used for naval housing during World War II. Be sure you're wearing comfortable shoes before you begin the ascent up the lighthouse's steep stairs.

  • What an awesome place! We tried to get into the lighthouse but they were having a wedding. We'll have to make another trip back there to enjoy everything around it. A lot of people fishing under the bridge. And when we went into the gift shop I found most perfect earrings I've been looking for!
  • It was closed and no way to even get near the lighthouse and I got there at 2 pm...
  • Wasn't happy that I had to pay even though I wasn't walking up the lighthouse. I get they need the money for upkeep and renovation, but at least offer a discounted. I enjoyed sitting under the Banyan tree. The views of the water are good.
  • I definitely recommend you take the tour when visiting the lighthouse. Frank was engaging and funny and has an obvious love for the history of both the lighthouse and surrounding area. The view from the top was spectacular and better than any other FL lighthouse we’ve climbed so far (St Augustine and Ponce Inlet).
  • Beautiful lighthouse! If you're taking a Lil One, they're only allowed to go up the lighthouse if they're 6 years or older (48" tall). Our Lil One was disappointed he couldn't go up so we decided to wait till next year so we can go with him. Other than that, staff is AMAZING and so is the museum! Very highly recommended! 👍 😊
