If you enjoy lighthouses, this one is great. The docent who began our tour was quite informative. He was the only one working, so once an admission line formed, he had to stop our "tour." However, everything was else was self-explanatory. The history behind this particular lighthouse was really interesting. We climbed all the way to the top on a... 更多
This weekend was my first visit to the Milwaukee and Lake Michigan area. I'm so happy I didn't pass on visiting this lighthouse. While I cannot speak to the tour, I can suggest that you at least make the drive and walk the area. Beautiful grounds and park nearby, behind the lighthouse, and just the homes in the area have... 更多
Great view and interesting piece of history. Unfortunately, had to rate lower for a few reasons. The price is too high considering what you get: a view and some interesting items to look at. There has been no attempt to ventilate the top of the lighthouse itself. We felt like we were going to pass out up there. And there... 更多
I had not know about this before my wife died or we'd have brought neighbor kids to see it. Not only does it have interesting audio/videos and "dioramas" you can still climb the EXTENDED lighthouse stairs up to the lamp-room.
My wife and I visited here while on vacation in Milwaukee. We've been to several lighthouses and this one is pretty good compared to others. The grounds are very nice, as there is a whole park behind the lighthouse with lots of walking trails. The museum was very interesting and the lady who gave us our tour was very knowledgeable... 更多
We were hoping to visit and climb the lighthouse for a cool experience. I didn't read anywhere that this was actually in Lake Park so was surprised we we rounded the corner to find it. Really cool looking lighthouse and great photo op. It looked empty so I checked out the website. Prior to going I had only read the... 更多
Christina, Thank you for your review. We're glad you come to visit our lighthouse and were able to get great... 更多
There are several places along the lakeside drive. We did have time to see many, but did stop and talk a walk up to this by way of hunting a geocache.
The standstill, the greenery around, the chirping of the birds.....an unspoken quietness so close to hustle bustle of the city....Well maintained and it gives a feeling as if you standing close to time of the days gone by.
Discovered the North Point Lighthouse on tripadvisor and decided to visit. Many locals did not know about the lighthouse, which surprised me. Its a beautiful spot slightly away from the main city. The gentleman at the lighthouse gave us a thorough tour of the museum before we went up the lighthouse. You need to wear plastic shoe bags to protect... 更多
