Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Mackinac Point Lighthouse served as a navigational beacon to boats traveling through the Straights of Mackinac from 1890 until it was replaced by instrumentation on the new Mackinac Bridge in 1957. Today, the restored lighthouse is open to the public.

Admission includes a guided tour of the lighthouse tower (as space is available), viewing of the keepers' quarters, a movie about shipwrecks in the straights, and a shipwreck museum to complement the movie.
