Good place to go on a rainy day or when you've had too much sun. Very interesting. Went last year, and heard they've added a lot of cool stuff since then.

Give yourself at least an hour. Good museum that tells the story of NJ Maritime History of LBI and it's coastal waters. The lower floor is loaded with pictures telling the story. Several areas of small artifacts. Head upstairs for larger items and the library. The staff was extremely friendly and was happy to answer any questions. Rainy day at... More
