Inside this beautiful, light green house lives memories, artifacts, & pieces of Ocean County/New Jersey history. The staff/volunteers are knowledgeable, kind, & tell wonderful stories of times past. You must check out their Antiques Faire in August!

Great little place to spend a couple of hours to learn about the history of Ocean County. Also to learn about how the towns came about and the people who started them.

This house museum is beautifully decorated. The tour was very informative and never rushed. Definitely a great tour if you like local history.

They've truly done a wonderful job at the Ocean County Historical Society. The displays are great and if you're looking for something in particular on a local subject, they most likely have it.

This little museum is a gem. Displays are changed frequently and the little book sale section is great. History of Toms River fascinating.

The volunteers were not that knowledgable. I know it's nice for a person to give their time, but I knew more about the tour then they did.
