Door County Maritime Museum Cana Island Lighthouse

Hours & Admission


Cana Island is open for the 2022 season! Cana Island is open May 1 to October 31, 10am-5pm, seven days a week. 

The 2022 season is also the final phase of a multi-million dollar restoration project. This means another season of obstacles for Cana Island guests. The Keeper’s House and Lighthouse interiors are getting restoration work, and will be closed for much of the season. Our admission price will again be the reduced rate of $10.

The Welcome & Interpretive Center, Oil House, Barn and Privy, and the nature trail are all open for the entire season! House and Tower MAY re-open in mid- to late-August. We will keep you updated. Thank you for your understanding and patience, as we work to preserve the lighthouse for future generations!​

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.
