Due to impacts from COVID-19, lighthouses within Cape Cod National Seashore are closed to the public during summer 2020. Visitors are welcome to visit the grounds and view the buildings from outside.
There are several lighthouses within Cape Cod National Seashore, reminding us of the Outer Cape's strong connection to the sea. Some of the lighthouses are maintained by partners, such as the Nauset Light Preservation Society and Eastern National. These organizations open the lighthouses to the public seasonally, and also provide the necessary maintenance to ensure that the lights shine brightly and are open to the public long into the future.
