The lighthouse is open for tours Wednesday through Monday, noon to 5 p.m., from mid-May through mid-October. The last tour each day begins at 4 p.m. Tours are given by lighthouse keepers; tickets available at the lighthouse museum store.
From early June through the end of August, the Friends of Tawas Point sponsor Tuesdays at the Light. The lighthouse is open noon to 4 p.m.
