For the safety of all, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 season at the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum. The museum will not be open to the public this year, and all events scheduled to be held at the museum will be canceled or rescheduled to the 2021 season.
The Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum will be open on Columbus Day (Monday, October 8) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors who mention the "Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria" will receive a free gift with paid admission ($5/Adults; $2.50/Students K-12; Free for Preschool Children and Sodus Bay Historical Society Members).
After many months, our WeatherBug camera is back up and running! You can now see a live picture of Lake Ontario and the Sodus Bay Pier. The Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum is part of Earth Networks, which operates the world's largest hyperlocal weather network. Many thanks to Cathy Contant and Earth Networks for getting us back online and for WHEC in Rochester for sponsoring the Sodus Bay Lighthouse as a WeatherBug site!

It is COLD and SNOWY, but we're already thinking of SUMMER here at the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum. Our concert season is set; our Independence Extravaganza will span six days this year; our 5-K Registration will be active soon; we'll be hosting new members-only events throughout the year; and we're putting together another great line-up of presenters for our "History Alive!" lecture series.
Check back often to see updates to our Events Calendar. Meanwhile, you can still shop online for all items in our Museum Store. Orders are shipped weekly by US Mail.
We look forward to seeing you at the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum during our 2018 season, which begins Tuesday, May 1.
Deborah Jeanne Sergeant recently wrote a nice article about the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum which appeared in the June 17 issue of Lancaster Farming. You can read the article online by CLICKING HERE.
According to their website, "Lancaster Farming is the leading Northeast and Mid-Atlantic farm newspaper. Every Saturday, the newspaper delivers news, market and commodity reports, and agribusiness information to more than 60,000 paid subscribers in Pennsylvania and fifteen other states. Lancaster Farming has been in continuous weekly print since 1955."
And to prove that the pen is powerful . . . We have already welcomed a family from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, who came to tour the Sodus Bay Lighthouse because they read this article!
