Climb 177 steps up the historic Pensacola Lighthouse for one of the most beautiful views on the Gulf Coast. Built in 1859, the lighthouse is located on board NAS Pensacola, right across from the National Naval Aviation Museum.
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.
The Pensacola Lighthouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
“IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are located on Naval Air Station Pensacola, which is currently open only to current DoD ID card holders and certain Veterans Health Identification Card holders. Civilians will not be able to access the Lighthouse on their own. For civilians seeking access, please see our special tour options here.
