A nice place to spend some time and review the Seaports history. The museum has interesting plctures of the past and there are local crafts for sale on occasions. There are a few other local stores that sell items one may find enjoyable.

The museum is very interesting and informative but the outdoors buildings and displays are closed and in bad disrepair. The museum is especially good for children and the importance of conservation.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND GOING WHEN IT IS HOT!! Most everything is outside. Two buildings were air conditioned, but only enough to take humidity out. Made our visit short. Other than that, what we saw was very interesting. Definitely WOULD recommend on a cooler day.

Went on a warm day. This seaport is a mix of many small buildings with exhibits many of them without air conditioners. It had a lot of local history. There is a full size replica of a light house that was on an island off...More

Tuckerton Seaport is a must if you are in the Little Egg Harbor/Tuckerton area. Amazing facts to learn about our area and fun for kids and adults. The Seaport sponsors a lot of festivals throughout the summer from blues to pirates. Most have food, music...More
