|Pictured Here: Members of the public can climb 199 steps to the watch gallery of the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse for a panoramic view of the Jersey Cape, Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean. The Cape May Lighthouse had 73,000 visitors in 2012 who climbed to the top and at least that many more who visited the ground floor and Oil House without climbing. Hours of operation vary throughout the year. Admission to the Visitors Orientation Center and the ground floor of the lighthouse is free; there is an admission fee to climb. The Cape May Lighthouse is owned by the State of New Jersey (Division of Parks and Forestry, Department of Environmental Protection) and leased to Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) with MAC assuming complete responsibility for the Cape May Lighthouse's restoration, maintenance, and operation.|
