Discover St. Augustine’s rich maritime past at the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum. This working lighthouse and keepers’ house feature exhibits on life at the lighthouse, the US Coast Guard in St. Augustine in WWII, and artifacts from shipwrecks off the nation’s oldest port. Visitors can climb 219 steps to the top of the tower for a spectacular view of St. Augustine and the beaches. For their safety, children must be both seven years old and four feet tall to climb the tower. Children not meeting the height and age restrictions will be given free admission to the grounds and museum, along with free admission for one accompanying adult.
