I couldn't believe how inexpensive tickets were, compared to museum tickets downtown! The ticket price is $9 ($7 for military) and it includes access to the top of the lighthouse, all of the cottages, and the armament museum across the street.

Everyone working in the area was incredibly nice and knowledgeable. It was fascinating to hear about the stages of developing the lighthouse, as well as Tybee Island itself. I also appreciated hearing about the lives of the lighthouse watchmen, how they got supplies and fresh water, and what their houses looked like.

This museum is a must for anyone visiting Tybee Island. Definitely the best museum in the Savannah area, for the cost.

Easy to navigate up the stairs. The views were amazing and the headkeepers house was charming. They do limit the amount of people at the top and you are allowed 10 minutes of time to take in the views.

Nice lighthouse with plenty of interesting history. Was very busy during spring break...had to wait about 40 mins online to enter lighthouse. I don’t think that is the norm...

I have been travelling North America getting photos and touring as many lighthouses as possible. This one is open 9am to 4:30 each day but Tuesday when it is closed. It is the oldest and tallest lighthouse in Georgia.

This was such a fun activity. We loved all the little rooms and houses to visit. Seeing how they lived back then is always great for the kids. Enjoyed the observation deck on top of the lighthouse.
