I take my family every year. The displays are very interesting and informative. In years past, the staff put on children's programs, but we didn't see any on the calendar this summer. Great place to visit for history of the sea and NJ storms.

We visited the museum while we attended the Annual Chowderfest event in early October. A great place to visit if you love the sea

If you at all interested in the history of maritime New Jersey, this is the place to go. It is no cost, but donations are definitely accepted. We saw a lot of various artifacts. It is very nicely set up and very full of all kinds of information. We received complimentary CDs at the end on all types of interviews... More

A treasure trove of history as far back as it goes. The pictures, videos, and range of local and expert books and sources reflect the amazing dedication of the manager and her dedication to preserving all this amazing and significant on LBI. Plan to spend at least an hour.
