COVID 19/Coronavirus Update

While we are looking forward to seeing you this season, the Seaport is currently closed to all visitors as a Coronavirus precaution.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details of when we’ll be back serving you again.


Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum serves as a showcase for New Jersey’s coastal culture. Come discover why Tuckerton is more than a museum.  It’s an experience!


Tuckerton Seaport Members receive exclusive benefits as part of their membership such as complimentary admission to all of our festivals and events throughout the year.


Capturing the stories of people making a difference and making the most of this time seems like a great way to dedicate our efforts.  Check out our upcoming online exhibit Making the Most.


Led by the Jersey Shore Folklife Center, the Seaport is excited to share oral histories of people who lived and worked on Barnegat Bay.


Visit the Seaport from the comfort of your home.  Check out the videos below.
