We needed a place to occupy our children (7 and 11) on a non beach day. This was a good accompaniment to our shore vacation. There was much to learn about the pine barrens, marshes and wildlife. There is a small playground and mini golf...More

Because of bad weather the area was closed. In the main building, upstairs was an interactive area with details of the area, fish, animals and everything you could’ve think of. We thought it was a fantastic area for children and adults alike. We could see...More

They have different events going on throughout the year. There is admission which I thought was a little steep. You can get a groupon or even buy a family membership for $30 for the year. We did the yearly membership because it was cheaper than...More

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.

It would certainly be better to visit this place during the summer season but we happened to be visiting the area in November and it was still worth a stop. Most things were closed but the visitor's center was great and the lighthouse was open...More

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.

The food trucks are great. It can get crowded but that's a good thing. Music is always top notch! Get a membership, otherwise you have to pay to go to each individual event.

My family have been regular visitors to the Tuckerton Seaport for several years. They have special weekend events throughout the summer that draws nice crowds (seafood festivals, food trucks, music, etc) but It's also a great place to visit when less crowded. There are several...More
