North Point Lighthouse Tours

8 Reviews
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.
