Fodor's Review

Set in the restored 1936 station, this museum—geared as much to kids as adults—features the life of a "Coastie" in the early 1940s, through personal accounts of the military history of St. Simons Island. It also has illustrative displays on the ecology of the islands off the coast of Georgia. Your ticket covers admission to the Lighthouse.
