CAPE ELIZABETH — The Portland Head lighthouse will be open for tours 3:30-5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Captain Strout Circle. Tour the museum located inside the Keepers Quarters and enjoy a truly rare opportunity to climb the spiral staircase of the 80-foot tower to take in the breathtaking views from inside of the lantern. Space is very limited; advanced reservations required. The climb to the top of the tower is strenuous and may not be appropriate for those with health issues or uncomfortable with heights.
Maine Maritime Museum members $24; nonmembers $30.
