The Minnesota Historical Society will resume tours of Split Rock Lighthouse in mid-March on a limited basis, with more options expected by summer.

The lighthouse and keeper's house will be part of a new 45-minute Keeper's Tour that will launch on March 13. The guided tour will be limited to ten people and will be offered Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in March and April at a cost of $25.

Expanded tour hours are expected in May, with additional admission options expected beginning Memorial Day weekend.

Meanwhile, the Lighthouse will resume charging for entry to the grounds on March 1.  An $8 Grounds Pass will provide access to the grounds, visitor center, and fog signal building.

The Lighthouse will also be offering daily pop-up history presentations and a rotating photography exhibit beginning March 1. Photographer Christian Dalbec, who specializes in wave and water photography as well as drone work at Split Rock, will be on site March 1, 13, and 31.

Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, which surrounds the lighthouse, remains open for outdoor activities.
