A quaint little boating village with a beautiful museum. There are docks and animal tending areas to view. A wonderful duck-boat maker in a separate building, love the smell of fresh-cut wood. We had gone for the duck-hunting and boat event. Lots of fun dog trials, including "dock dogs", to watch.

Neat area, not much was open due to still being closed from Hurricane Sandy. Still some parts in disrepair. A nice drive if you are not far away and looking for something to do rather quickly.

This area offers something "neat" various times of the year and the Christmas Holiday time is one of the better ones.They have a Christkindlmarkt theme during the early part of December which has vendors and food for sale which is when these pictures were taken.

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!
