Visit the nation's first lighthouse museum, open since 1927.

The Stonington Lighthouse features brilliant stonework on the outside and is a beloved landmark. Constructed in 1840, this lighthouse stands at Connecticut's only port that faces the Atlantic Ocean. It helped guide ships across Fishers Island Sound. Seven different families lived in the keeper's quarters during its heyday. The keeper's quarters are now used as the lighthouse museum, which features artifacts depicting the local maritime history.

Visitors can climb the 29 step circular staircase to the top. From the deck, you can see views of Long Island and Rhode Island on a clear day. Stonington Lighthouse is open seasonally from mid-May to mid-October. Hours are Thursday - Monday from 10 am to 4 pm. Look into booking a historic Stonington Borough guided walking tour if you plan to come on Friday or Saturday. These tours last about an hour and begin at the lighthouse museum.
