Overview

Built in 1859, the Pensacola Lighthouse and Maritime Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the lighthouse still shines and aids the navigation of the U.S. Coast Guard. Climb to the top of the lighthouse tower for an incredible view, take a ghost hunt, or observe a United States Navy Blue Angels practice flight. Learn and explore at the Richard C. Callaway Museum inside the 1869 keeper’s quarters. The Pensacola Lighthouse and Maritime Museum sits on the Naval Air Station which is an active military base. As a civilian visitor, be sure to familiarize yourself with the regulations for visiting the base. Exhibits in the museum cover topics including the history of the Coast Guard, illumination, historical living, women in lighthouse keeping, and more.
