The classroom and Research Center wasn't open yet but you could see a bit of the outside beauty that they set up for the preserve and park like setting. Seems like they have classes and training and probably lots of exhibits inside. Just don't go early Sunday morning

A very kid friendly, hands on exhibit, with excellent, friendly staff to answer questions. Excellent descriptions of what an estuary is, and why it is important to the health of the environment.

after trudging through the seaport and being disappointed i came to this on thier top floor. I was very impressed at quality of the installation and the information. Who ever is incharge of this place should take over the rest of the seaport. It was obvious that these exhibits were professionally made and developed whereas the Seaports exhibits looked like...

Part of the whole Tuckerton Seaport experience, this third floor exhibit tells of efforts to understand and maintain the unique Jersey shore estuaries, barrier islands, and inland rivers that are special to the Pinelands.
