CLOSURE NOTICE: Due to the tragic events aboard NAS Pensacola on December 6th, the Pensacola Lighthouse & Maritime Museum can currently only receive DOD ID card holding guests at this time. Individuals without a DOD ID Card will not be allowed access to the base through any gate. We will keep everyone posted when the base is able to receive civilian guests once again. Thank you for your understanding!


The Pensacola Lighthouse Association is an organization dedicated to preserving the past to enlighten the future. To keep our story alive for our community, we need your help! We are always looking for volunteers to perform a number of tasks. Our volunteers: 

  • Greet and engage visitors at the top of our historic, active lighthouse tower 
  • Help with special events (field trips, museum tours, etc.) 
  • Aid staff and other volunteers in facilities maintenance 
  • And more!
