  • Well done! We are avid lighthouse visitors and we just adored this one. The museum is a nice blend of maritime and local history. Very interesting local baseball exhibit. Friendly staff and the tour books are a nice touch. Great history there!
  • Fun quaint local museum. They had some random stuff that you would never see in a large metropolitan museum.
  • Finally got into this tiny museum run by the local historical society. Well done.
  • Nice people, nice place. Only one of its kind in the area. Stop by to learn about local history and see the way lighthouse keepers used to live on the precipice of raging Lady Michigan.
  • True historical part of Washington Park. Not only it offers beautiful scenery but it also offers education in history.
