  • It was one of the most characteristic lighthouses ever. You can miss it like we did I was looking straight ahead and it was on left. Not trying to be rude but The young man working there gave quite a bit of information but he was NOT a personable person, no smile not interactive people. All included very nice
  • A short Drive off of route 1, and the town of Stonington is a quaint backdrop the Lighthouse, I was fortunate to have good weather but so close to the water I can imagine it could be pretty raw
  • There are nice views from the top of the lighthouse but the museum is very small with not much to see/do.
  • I hag a great time visiting this place. First of all I love lighthouses. Second, the exhibit it gives you a tour throughout history about the lives of the people of Stonington and not only about the lighthouse itself.
  • A great little museum! The staff is very knowledgeable and eager to share their information if you would like it. The location is very scenic and affords some great photographic opportunities.
