Travel Instructions: From Marine Drive, the main road in Port Bickerton, turn east onto Lighthouse Road and drive 2.1 km (1.3 miles) to its end where you will find two Port Bickerton Lighthouses. The older lighthouse is the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Interpretive Centre. The old lighthouse contains information on the lighthouse, and visitors are allowed to climb to the lantern room. A nearby keeper's dwelling has models of several lighthouses in Nova Scotia. The centre is open daily, June 15 to September 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

When the keeper's dwelling is not being used for an Artist in Residence Programme, it is available to the public for weekly rentals.

The new Port Bickerton Lighthouse is owned by the Canadian Coast Guard. Grounds open, tower closed.
