The park remains open daily from 8AM to sunset throughout the construction process. The visitor center/museum in the fog signal building and the park store are open 10AM-4PM, Friday - Monday. Pigeon Point hostel continues to welcome guests. However, the mini-museum in the kerosene bunker is closed for the duration of construction.
