I was extremely impressed with the museum and even more so with the "can do" attitude of Mark and his colleague. I had been looking forward to this and it more than met my expectations. This museum needs to be publicized to the hilt. A hidden gem. Keep up the good work. A true historic site. Well done and thanks so much Mark.

Yes it's a replica of the original. I was disappointed but got over it quickly. It's a good tour with some local blarney thrown in. Location is great and parking is good. Not for large rv's though. They have the original lense, impressive. Btw there is a geo cache on grounds.

Wonderful lighthouse with fabulous views! We stopped in for a look and took a tour of the place. Very interesting lighthouse, its a replica to 1/2 scale of the original. The 2 ladies giving the tour were just great. It was only 2 of us in the tour and we spent so much time looking at everything and was great getting all our questions answered. Interesting to learn of the history behind this lighthouse. When your done here, go next door and check out the meeting house. That's really cool too.

This is a replica built of the original lighthouse with the original light glass. It is an informative tour by young students of the area lighthouse and some history of its time. They were friendly and informative.
