Cape Canaveral Lighthouse is located on Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, America's Gateway to Space. Located on an active military installation, tours are only available to the public via pre-scheduled tours. Visit our website, CanaveralLight.org, for tour information and options (public and private). Reservations are required at least two days prior.
Built in 1868, the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse is 151' tall, cast iron, brick lined, and has 176 steps to the top. Visitors can take a guided tour of the Lighthouse and learn its history in the replica Head Keeper's Cottage which serves as a Museum and Gift Shop
In addition to the Lighthouse, the tour may include Space history with a stop at one of the Air Force Space and Missile Museum centers, Hangar C, historic spaceflight complexes from the early 1950 programs through Apollo 7 launch, and memorials to the Astronaut & Space Programs. There are opportunities to see current launch complexes and programs that are our next step into Space, the Moon, and Beyond.
Enjoy the history of the Cape and wildlife as you go to each site!
