This museum is across the street from the park. Friendly staff and plentiful parking. It's interesting and has a fun little gift shop. A nice place to spend a bit of time.

Prepare to learn and understand what happened so long ago at L.B.I. in N.J. . The staff there will explain anything you want to know.

This museum is packed with interesting nautical items and pictures, specially if you have an interest in ship wrecks off the NJ coast. What makes it special, however, is the serious research side of the house. The management will help you find any information available if you are doing serious research.

$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.

Information is everywhere in this well laid out, very informative, only seven years old museum. The staff... More
