$3 to get in...lots of old pictures and artifacts. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but there's not a whole lot to do otherwise. Most things in Beach Haven seem geared to fleecing tourists. Mostly overpriced.

What a great place, lots of history and fun artifacts that will keep you enthralled for hours. Lots of kids but lots for adults too. We went in thinking we would be in an out in 15 minutes, but it was closer to 90 when we left. Great for a rainy day excursion on the island.

When in LBI it is a must visit to the Maritime Museum in Beach Haven, well worth your time! I have gone 3 or 4 times now and still have not explored everything they have cataloged from hundreds of ships.
