What to do and see at North Point Lighthouse

Explore and experience this unique Wisconsin historic treasure and museum.
• Climb the 1888 74-foot tower for a spectacular 360° view of historic Lake Park, Lake Michigan and Milwaukee.
• Discover how the lighthouse was a beacon to the Great Lakes maritime industry for almost 100 years.
• Enjoy docent-led museum tours about the history of the North Point Lighthouse and its importance to Milwaukee’s shipping industry.
• View exhibits featuring keepers tools, log books and personal items, the history of Milwaukee's lighthouses, Milwaukee's immigrant roots and maritime artifacts used by sailors on the Great Lakes.
• Learn about the keepers and their families, and how they maintained the lantern room light. Georgia Stebbins, our only woman and longest-serving keeper, climbed the tower nearly 64,000 times while tending to the light!
• Explore the maritime history and artifacts about the ships that sailed on Lake Michigan—and the shipwrecks that occurred.
