Major renovations completed in 2007, including installation of a staircase to the lantern room, allowed the Martha's Vineyard Museum to open the interior of the Edgartown Light to visitors. The lighthouse is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day on weekends. From mid June to Labor Day, it is open daily. Visit the MV Museum's website for specific hours. Admission is $5 for adults, and free for children. An adult must accompany any child if they wish to climb to the top. Picnickers are welcome. Parking is available, but limited, on North Water Street. The Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) busses drop off on Church Street in Edgartown. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the lighthouse from this location. The lighthouse is also available for private rentals. It is closed in inclement weather.
