What a charming place by the shore to visit. Interesting museums at the Tuckerton Lighthouse and the Seaport itself showcasing and demonstrating the local area and the Pine Barrens. Great for kids and families and for all! The restaurant is good too. Sit outside on a warm sunny day. The Tuckerton Seaport has fun events scheduled all year long. Visit... More

A great number of the buildings are still not open due to the damage from the hurricane Sandy. We were directed to be sure to see the carving shops. Both were open but there was no one to explain anything to us. The general upkeep of the property was mediocre. It needed paint and sprucing in a lot of areas.... More

The collections of local history and general maritime history is well above average. There are children attractions as well as a Custeau display. The full scale lighthouse can be climbed to the top and original craftsman are working onsight.

Great place to spend a day with the family. Learn about the heritage of the local area baymen and lots of interactive exhibits!

Our camera club went there to take pictures and found it very interesting. Well run with volunteers. If your interested in seaports this is a must stop for local history.

I was expecting a miniature Mystic Seaport. Not even close. Hurricane Sandy did some major damage to the Seaport so many attractions were closed. There were no exhibits. So, it was a short walk around the seaport and that was it. It was off season so that might have explained things, but, I was disappointed. I enjoyed seeing some of... More

Nice diversion on a clear weather day. The lighthouse is a replica of the original that fell into the sea in the late 1920's. All the buildings are reproductions of the island life that was here at the turn of the last century. The current focus seems to be the bird hunting on the bay with an an exhibit of... More

The Tuckerton Seaport is a very nice place to visit. If not for the kids, you will appreciate it more then the kids. They have many educational things to learn about and many things for the kids to experience. It takes you back a bit in time to the way things were in the area. The Staff is very nice... More

Once again it was off season and the Museum was not crowded, the drawback is that it was not fully staffed and not every building was manned but most were open. There are good depictions of the ecology of the area and the "working" seaport is well thought out and interesting. This is a great spot to take children, there... More

Came here with a group of 12 people ranging from Kindergarteners to Senior Citizen. We all enjoyed something. The kids really liked learning about the horseshoe crabs and terrapin turtles in the main building. I loved the lighthouse and sitting on the boardwalk looking at the boats and houses. Walking around and looking at all the exhibits took a few... More
