Thomas Point Lighthouse Tour

The Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark and one of only ten lighthouses in the country to be bestowed this honor. Built in 1875, it is arguably the most recognized lighthouse in Maryland. Tours depart from AMM and are hosted by the U.S. Lighthouse Society. A 30-minute scenic Bay cruise is followed by a one-hour docent-led tour of the historic lighthouse interior. On the way back to the Annapolis Maritime Museum, a photo opportunity allows visitors to capture images of the lighthouse from all angles. These are the only tours that also provide access with an interior tour of the historic lighthouse.
