This is a great place to go on a rainy beach day. This is where i learned that horseshoe crabs have blue blood!!
The Nature Center of Cape May. Is a great place to visit, especially for bird lovers in the fall. They have marches with plenty of overlooks. You can walk along the beach and there are plenty of Nature trails to hike and see many verities of Birds.
We went to the Nature Center during our stay at Cape May during the Labor Day Weekend. We spent most of our morning there just checking out what they have. We enjoyed ourselves checking out the fish and other creatures they had for exhibits. The tower was a great place to see a beautiful view of Cape May Harbor. We... More

The center's focus is on their education programs, and they also offer kayak rentals and tours of the harbor, as well as paddle-board rentals.

Seeing, touching, doing, that's what the Nature Center of Cape May is all about. A nice man took us through to the marsh with a seine net and we collected all sorts of marine life.

A kayak class was taking place, there were day camp sign ups for young kids which I would take advantage of if I... More

Paddle-boarding (we didn't know) is like standing on a surf board and rowing with an over-sized canoe paddle. It's easy to get the hang of it, and a very relaxing way to see the flora and fauna of the tidal... More
What a delightful little charm! So much information presented in interesting fashion. Our kids, ages 5, 6 & 12 were mesmerized with the specimens (alive and not). They were alive with questions - they were engaged in learning and wanted us to get involved, to share their excitement! And all we did was walk inside to escape the 100 degree... More
Wonderful place to go at any age. The history of the Point, coastline erosion, the sealife- all so interesting.
I kissed a horseshoe crab for 10 years of good luck and watched an eager group of school children learn about the sea and shore life of Cape May..what an experience! The facility Director did our clas and led us to the shore to collect speciments for a wonderful hands-on experience.
