I love it every time I walk through. There`s lots of ship related artifacts and history of the area. Well worth a few hours of your day if you have the time.

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.

This should be a must see for all LBI visitors. The building is packed with every aspect of NJ maritime history and memorabilia and you can easily get lost in all of the pictures and writings which are literally everywhere. If you need help/info there are always people around to answer your questions. Beyond the obvious maritime info there's also... More

This is not what you expect. It is a small, somewhat hard-to-find museum of the main road in Beach Haven in Long Beach Island. It is worth the trip and the time to find it. It is located in what looks like an older beach house and is packed with local and regional marine history. There are 2 floors and... More

This is a fairly new and very interesting museum. Inside the floor plan is designed to give the feel of being in a ship. It has a light and airy feel with large spaces and absolutely riveting displays. Very good place for a sunny or rainy day. Nice elevator for people with walking problems and nice staff.

This is a nice little museum. Especially the storm photos. Stop in to show your support for a few minutes while on your way through.

Don't miss this if you are in LBI. We brought our grandson's 5 and 8, they loved it, I loved it. Spent about 2 1/2 hours viewing everything. Very interesting stuff and history, No entrance fee. Time well spent. The volunteers are very proud of this place and should be. Nice job!!!
