Unfortunately children cannot be carried up; it's a Coast Guard regulation and a safety issue. Like you stated, what most guests do is take turns climbing; one or more in your party stays with the child/children while the others climb and then they switch. We look forward to your visit! Thank you for contacting Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum.
Q:
Do you have to book a tour or can you just show up and be able to guide yourself?
A:
The Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum is all self-guided so you can visit at your own pace. We look forward to your visit!
