The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum is an active lighthouse and educational museum offering spectacular views and centuries of local history. The current lighthouse was built in 1874 and is situated at the north end of Anastasia Island, where the views stretch out across Matanzas Bay along with much of northeast Florida.
As well as the spectacular views and scenic grounds, visitors to the St Augustine Lighthouse can learn about the nation’s oldest port and other maritime history at the Keeper’s House Museum. There are also a number of guided tours to choose from, including the Dark of the Moon paranormal tour, plus the Behind the Scenes and Lost Ships archaeology tours.
There’s a gift shop on-site where visitors can purchase unique lighthouse souvenirs to take home.
The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum is open from 9am until 7pm during the summer. Free parking is available at the museum.
