Bring your family and explore the world of the Jersey Shore!
Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum serves as a showcase for New Jersey’s rich coastal culture. Located in Ocean County on the South Jersey Shore, Tuckerton Seaport comprises 40 acres along Tuckerton Creek of which 16 acres make up the recreated maritime village and nature trail. The remaining 24 acres are undeveloped Green Acres land preserved for nature interpretation. The Seaport’s campus includes 15 buildings with museum exhibits, a Lighthouse, Gift Shop, Visitor Center, and coffee shop. The Seaport, which first opened in May 2000, is committed to furthering the public knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the Barnegat Bay and surrounding environment through exhibition, artist demonstration, educational programming, research, and documentation.
The Tuckerton Seaport is fundamentally a grassroots result of the efforts of a small group of dedicated local outdoorsmen who were able to strike an emotional spark that has resulted in perhaps the largest living history museum in New Jersey.
In 2009, the Seaport was named one of the “Top Tri-State Regional Attractions” by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Offering endless educational opportunities, the Seaport is the perfect day trip down the Shore.
