It is worth a visit, a nice lighthouse with nice staff/volunteers. With a lot of stairs to the top but with nice views. Nice pictures in different lights from inside but also from outside it.

This was a really neat experience visiting this lighthouse. It was a rainy day, but that didn't stop our family exploring! The shoreline is beautiful, and you can see Canada as well! You can go up to the top of the lighthouse, but beware there is a spiral staircase with a lot of steps! The museum is quite interesting as... More

This is a large lighthouse, compared to many of my lighthouse visits. Very easy to find, minimal walking, friendly staff (volunteers), and tours. Very photogenic scene. The stone wall makes this lighthouse scene very unique.

Driving to/from the Yooper's Whitefish Pt/Sault Ste Marie on Lakeshore Drive? Don't miss this FREE attraction! Beautiful, well-kept historic lighthouse that you can climb (72 steps), a small gift shop, a 'life-in-the-1950s lighthouse' display, and trails on catwalks that take you right down to the shore, AND the VIEW. Charge up those cameras and cell phones for great photo opp's!

Beautiful drive out from Brimley. Lots of parking and well staffed store/museum. The gentleman working was quite knowledgeable regarding local history as well as maritime history. You can climb up to the top of the lighthouse and enjoy spectacular views, all free. Also have a nice boardwalk along the beach with great views.

Secluded and quiet but a very fascinating visit. See a lighthouse up close and personal. I loved the 1950's exhibit and the grounds were very well landscaped!

We stopped here on our way between Sault St Marie and Whitefish Point. Met the care takers who were very friendly and informative about their stay at the lighthouse. The lighthouse is accessible but the climb is steep, narrow and no hand rail on the right of the stairs. If you're over 6'5", (I'm 6'8" ) and getting through the... More

The lighthouse has gone through an amazing renovation, & nicely depicts the life one had as a light keeper

Another surprise treking through Michigan! A well done restoration and museum. Scenery is breathtaking, especially with the Fall colors present. A noble interpretation of Michigan history. Make this a stop on your trip from the Soo to Whitefish Bay and Point.

This is best captured from the water and you can get some great photos from this vantage point. You can also climb the lighthouse if you are physically fit. Lots of stairs but worth it for the view!
