Pensacola Lighthouse & Maritime Museum
Climb 177 steps up the historic Pensacola Lighthouse for one of the most beautiful views on the Gulf Coast. Built in 1859 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974, the lighthouse is located on board NAS Pensacola.
The top of the tower offers stunning views of Pensacola Pass (where Pensacola Bay meets the Gulf of Mexico), three historic forts, the Pensacola skyline, and the historic Navy Yard. The fully restored Keepers' Quarters - built in 1869 - is home to the Richard C. Callaway Museum, which houses numerous exhibits on local history and the lighthouse itself.
