The Twin Lights Museum is offering another addition to the annual Lighthouse Challenge set for Oct. 16 and 17 this year. In addition to having some wonderful new exhibits in the exhibit halls, for the first time both towers are open for climbing!
The museum of course is open at no charge, and it’s only $5 per adult and $2 per child 12 years and under to climb each one or both towers while you’re there. There’s a new Highlands room which is open for rent for small private meetings, conferences or meetings, but take the time to visit that room as well to learn about everything from early local lobstermen and clammers to the amusement park that used to be across the river from the Twin Lights and see some of the artifacts that have been found and preserved in the area…including a few bottles from bootlegging time in Prohibition.
The Museum will be open from 8 a.m., to 6 p.m. both days of the Challenge and is a wonderful first stop on your way to the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, the other eight south of here, as well as the three life saving stations. Get the colorful frameable collage and pay the $4 registration fee at the Twin Lights, so you’ll be able to get a sticker here and at each of the next stops you make on two days of seeing the bright lights of the Jersey shore.
