This New Jersey Maritime Museum Makes For A Perfect Family Day Trip

New Jersey’s museums are occasionally overshadowed by big-name New York museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History. While both are wonderful, the Garden State can hold its own. Jersey City’s Liberty Science Center is home to the largest planetarium in the western hemisphere and Ogdensburg’s Sterling Hill Mining Museum offers an actual mine tour AND is home to some of the rarest fluorescent minerals in the world. Today, the focus is on a fantastic maritime museum that’s perfect for families…

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

There’s truly something for everyone who has any interest in history or shore life. Kids and adults alike will enjoy it! If you’re interested in visiting, check out their website for all the info. For the best experience, visit on the weekends – there’s a lot more going on. Weekdays work too, if you want to avoid the crowds.
