The museum is located close to the Lighthouse. It has all sorts of exhibits that give the history of the area, the lighthouse, bird life, etc. The admission is free. A very good stop for school... more »
Such a beautiful piece of history. The staff is extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the lighthouse, museum (formerly a schoolhouse) and the overall area. The garden is lovely and well maintained. I enjoyed the little video about the coast guard dog Sinbad. That is definitely great for kids to check out. This museum is small, but it is really worth checking out if you are going to the lighthouse.
Wonderful historical building, within walking distance of the lighthouse. Totally worth visiting after a visit to the barnegat lighthouse. They have the original lens inside the building, and the caretakers are very nice and knowledgeable. They also have lots of history about this building in particular which apparently was a school at one point. It's free entry, and they're open most days so drop by.
