Key West Lighthouse Museum
Long ago, hazardous reefs off Key West wrecked many ships. To keep ships off the reefs, a lighthouse was built in 1825. Although it was destroyed in 1846, it was later rebuilt inland on Whitehead Street and was manned for more than 120 years. It's now open for those who can climb the 88 steps to the top of the tower, and tour the grounds. A small museum of nautical artifacts and vintage photos has been set up in the Keeper's Quarters.
