  • Terrific fun and exercise (that climb to the top can be a little brutal!) The view is worth it!
  • 178 steps to the top! Built in 1753. It remains as an active intact lighthouses today.
  • Don't pay to park in front of Tybee Museum if there is room at the Light House parking lot just a bit farther down. It is free over there and the ticket covers both venues.
  • Parking is free at the lighthouse parking the battery is included with the lighthouse
  • $3 to park for 10 minutes and $7 for a SELF-tour of this tiny lighthouse? Not worth it.
  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • I was impressed with the lighthouse, but the staff was very rude. Don't expect ANY museum reciprocations to be honored, not even the Coastal Museum Assoc. (they're members). No interactive exhibits.
  • Absolutely beautiful!
  • 10 bucks for a museum and getting on top of the lighthouse. The museum is moldy, old, and shabby but the lighthouse view is worth the cost.
  • Park for free in the lighthouse lot, then get ready to climb to the top! Your ticket gets you into the lighthouse, two keepers' cottages and summer kitchen, PLUS the museum and the yellow cottage.
  • Beautiful views but it's a workout getting up there. Be prepared for your cavs to burn.
  • This is a place you must visit
  • Not open on Tuesdays.....:-)
  • Parking costs far too much.
  • $8 dollars per person plus $1.50 to park makes this somewhat expensive. It also costs to visit the Battery museum as well.
  • 176 steps to the top, how fast can you do it.
  • Had intended a tour of the museum and lighthouse but ticket lady said my girlfriend had to cover up as she had a 2 piece swim suit with a coverup on already. Nothing wrong with her attire as it was!
  • Stretch the legs before and after taking on the 174 lighthouse steps. Or pain the next day. Amazing view from above. A seniors visit.
  • Truly enjoyed the visit. This gentleman provided a wealth of details, stuck with us throughout.
  • The 2nd Assistant Keepers Cottage is informative and air conditioned. Climb the tower then cool off and learn the history.
