In addition to the operation of the National Lighthouse Museum, numerous events will take place in Building 11, and various other locations, throughout the year.

Tent audienceCurrently Lighthouse Boat Tours are conducted monthly during the temperate months of the year. Once the museum is in full operation, it is envisioned that these trips will be scheduled more often.

The NLM Education Committee hosts an ongoing series of monthly lectures and presentations about Lighthouses and related maritime subjects. Prior to obtaining the lease for Building 11, these lectures were held in various locations near the St. George site. Now that we are on site, we are holding all lectures in Bldg. #11.

Building 11 and the Plaza will be the site of many cultural events throughout the year. The NLM looks forward to collaborating with other groups in efforts to bring art, music, and other exhibits and performances to the local community.

Throughout the year, the NLM will host other events to raise the awareness of the historic importance of Lighthouses to the nation. Anyone wishing to work with the NLM on an event should contact the Executive Director at
