Tower Climb Tours

Please call 262-880-8266 to make a reservation.

Your Tower Climb begins with a 12-15 minute presentation by our “Keeper, Pete Peterson”, followed by the 15-20 minute climb to the top of the tower, an opportunity to view our Memorial Brick Garden on the shore of Lake Michigan and a visit to the Fog Horn Building Museum. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the time scheduled for your climb.

Our latest addition to the grounds is the restored Fuel Building that exhibits a display showing the historic role it played in supporting the Lighthouse. This restoration was made possible by a donation from the estate of Mary Wackerhagen, former President and charter member of Friends of the Wind Point Lighthouse.

Tower Climb Tours are conducted the first Sunday of the months listed below from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Included with your ticket is a visit to the Fog Horn House Museum on the grounds.
