Constructed in 1848, the Biloxi Lighthouse has provided navigational assistance to watercraft of all sizes as they sail along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The lighthouse has survived both the Civil War and numerous hurricanes, and remains operational today. Visitors can climb the lighthouse’s 57-step spiral staircase and an eight-rung ladder to the top, where they can take in the scenic view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Tours are given every Monday through Saturday at 9 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. (weather permitting). All tour participants must be at least 42 inches tall. Note: Participants must be able to climb through a 19-by-23-inch trap door at the top of the ladder in order to reach the light room.
