Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum Review

Designed by Civil War hero Lieutenant George Gordon Meade, this brick lighthouse has been under the Coast Guard's purview since 1860. Tours of the 108-foot-tall landmark are held approximately every half-hour and are included with admission. (Children must be at least 4 feet tall to go to the top.) The museum tells about efforts to restore this graceful spire to the way it looked from 1860 to 1918; its galleries and outdoor structures, including a pioneer home, also showcase local history dating back five thousand years.
