Door County Maritime Museum Cana Island Lighthouse

Hours & Admission


Cana Island is now closed for the 2021 season. Cana Island is open May 1 to October 31. During the season, Cana Island is open 10am-5pm, seven days a week, including the new Welcome & Interpretive center, keeper’s quarters and outbuildings.  
We ask that our guests, volunteers and staff help us in the following ways:
  • Take your own health, and that of others, seriously;
  • Wear a mask in shared public spaces where social distancing is not consistently in place;
  • Wash or sanitize your hands at least two or three times while visiting the Museum;
  • If you believe you may be ill, please do not visit Museum properties.

The last haywagon ride departs from the parking lot at 4:15pm. The last tower climb starts at 4:30pm. 

Please note the high water has made crossing difficult in past years and we have to close during unsafe conditions.
You can check the Cana Island Lighthouse Facebook for closing notices or call 920-743-5958 to verify we are open.

There are age and height restrictions for children to safely climb the tower. They must be at least 5 yrs. old and 42 inches tall.
