Lighthouse · Historic Site
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.

  • We loved it. The views from the top were breathtaking. Every thing about the whole experience was great. The staff were all so nice, welcoming and very knowledgeable.
  • The tour was well worth it and no extra cost. All of the volunteers at the lighthouse were so helpful and their respect and admiration for the history evident. Gift shop is great too. Hope to go back again.
  • Best memories for my Grandson (10) and myself. It was his favorite thing about his trip to Florida. I enjoyed climbing up and making it to the top. Nice few from the walkway to the water. Great souvenir store. Everyone was very nice.
  • Rich in history. Well maintained. Knowledgeable volunteers. Great view from the top!
  • Very cool! Hard to climb but worth it. Not for families with small kids. We had to do it in shifts. A few of the exhibits were closed unfortunately. I recommend this if your in the area. Prices aren't too bad. $12 for 18+ and 6-12 are $6.
