North Point Lighthouse Tours

Located within the historic Lake Park, the North Point Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse built on Milwaukee’s shore of Lake Michigan in 1888. The site features a 74-foot lighthouse tower and the wood-frame, Queen Anne-style Keeper’s Quarters. The lighthouse remained operational, guiding ships along the lakefront, until 1994, when it was decommissioned. Today it serves as a focal point of the surrounding Lake Park, and a museum where visitors can explore the keeper’s house and climb the stairs to the top of the tower to enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the lake. Exhibits in the museum include the original lighthouse ledgers, photos of the lighthouse over the years and the lighthouse’s Fresnel lens, removed when it was decommissioned in 1994, as well as many pieces from Milwaukee’s maritime history.

Practical Info

North Point Lighthouse is only open on the weekends, though it is possible to arrange private tours during the week. A visit to the lighthouse is great activity as part of an afternoon spent enjoying the fresh air and scenery of Lake Park.

Admission for children ages 5-11 is $5, children under four years of age are free. June - September features special summer hours where the lighthouse is open 10am-2pm.
