Fascinating museum in the former lighthouse keeper's house with tons of artifacts, photos, stories and videos detailing the history of the area, the lighthouse and local Native American involvement. The property is beautiful and the best view in town, though the actual lighthouse view is limited by safety railings. Fabulous staff on hand to help and chat.

This is a pleasant activity to do in Montauk. I checked out their museum and it was very interesting to see the history of the lighthouse as well as native americans history in Montauk. I was able to go on the top part of the lighthouse. Recommend to wear comfortable shoes to go up their spiral staircase to the top of the lighthouse.

It was a wonderful experience sharing with family. But the person taking tickets to go up to the light house can use some customer service tranning. Other than that it was great!😍😍😍
