Had a great time! Beautiful view... Totally worth the hike up. (Be careful at the very top it is a very narrow entry way and the group in front of us hit her head and started bleeding everywhere.) Bes...ides that... We loved the museum and gift shop there. Will definitely be back soon! See More

Had a blast at Old Baldy. The walk up the light house was great. Perfect weather too! Amazing views and the lady in the gift shop was the nicest.

We took my family who is visiting from IL to see Old Baldy.. upon arriving to the lighthouse we weren't allowed to climb.. We were running only about 5 min late for the " cut off " time to purchase ti...ckets to climb the lighthouse.. and we were still denied. The lady was very stern and a little rude to my family and I when we literally begged her to climb.. I mean I get it... but she could have gave us some slack! We would have been done well before it was time for her to be off work but she didn't care. ( also to mention nobody else was there ) With much disappointment we still made the best of the trip. We walked around, visited the church on the island & shopped in the stores there. It is a very beautiful island.. we hope to return & climb the lighthouse one day.. See More

Great staff full of information and history of the island. Climb the light house for the best views on the island. This Historic landmark is a must see every time you visit the island. A great gift sh...op and wonderful staff. This 200 year old light house has some stories share. Come take part in history. See More

I took my Daughter and son and law and my grandsons, Jackson and Morrison to the Island and light house. They all really loved it. Was a fun trip.

Incredible views from top of Lighthouse. People in museum were very nice. Climb was not too bad. Worth it.

Visited today, the lady who helped us out was very friendly and informative. The top was closed for construction but we were able to go most of the way up! The girls loved it! Can't wait to come back ...and go all the way to the top! See More

It's a hot climb in the summer, but totally worth it!

The amount of history on the island was awesome. I can't believe I lived so close to it and hadn't made my way to it before now

Cool place, lots of history about the island and surrounding area. It's one of the first things you see when you get off the ferry.

Loved everything about it! Perfect place to kick back and relax.
International Chimney drone video of the cap and lantern room. Old Baldy needs help stopping the leaks around the top, which is causing the water damage on the top 2 landings. Please remember this is why we charge admission and are constantly fundraising!
