Portland Head Light in Fort Williams Park is the oldest lighthouse in Maine.  The United States Coast Guard maintains the actual light and the fog signal; the remainder of the property is managed by the Town of Cape Elizabeth.

Fort Williams Park is open year round from sunrise to sunset.  There is no admission fee.  The Museum at Portland Head Light, in the former Keepers' Quarters, is open daily from Memorial Day to the Friday following Columbus Day from 10 AM to 4 PM.  From mid April to Memorial Day and from Columbus Day to just before Christmas the Museum is open weekends only.   Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children age 6-18.  There is no charge for children younger than 6.
