AAA Editor Notes

Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum are 1 mi. n.w. on SR 1, then 2.4 mi. w. on Lighthouse Rd.; watch for the signed turnoff. The 115-foot-tall, steel-reinforced concrete lighthouse opened in 1908 to replace the 1870 structure that was irreparably damaged by the 1906 earthquake. Visitors can climb to the top, where a staff member can provide background information and answer questions. The lighthouse is adjacent to the Point Arena/Stornetta Unit of the California National Marine Sanctuary.</br>Historical items are displayed in the adjacent maritime museum. From the tower, museum and grounds it's possible to spot migrating and visiting whales throughout the year.</br>
Museum and tower admission $7.50; $1 (ages 5-12). Museum only $5; $1 (ages 5-12).
Hours: Daily 10-4:30, Memorial Day weekend-Labor Day; 10-3:30, rest of year. Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.
