One could spend weeks in the museum - there is so much to see and so much material available to browse through. The history of the Jersey Shore comes alive in this place. Put down your cell phones and head over to spend some time...More

Great exhibits of NJ maritime history. Many of the interpreters are former divers. The founders are a dedicated couple who had a dream of creating a wonderful history of sea exploration. Free admission.

Fascinating array of memoirs, memoribilia, documents and more. Despite small size one could spend days investigating naval and maritime history. The prioprioters are friendly and knowledgeable. It's worth a separate trip.

We paid a visit to this tiny museum for free showing maritime artifacts and encompassing more than 500 shipwrecks papers. It was fun visiting and books were 50% off. Kids will love it.

The volunteers were extemely knowledgeable and loved to share stories. Would suggest it for pre teens and older though. Neat little gift shop too.

This place is run by old volunteer nursing home ladies who hate kids. Signs saying kids running loose will be kicked out and old ladies screaming at kids isn't a good time. What kind of crap museum isn't made for kids? The exhibits were small...More

I don't think she would be thrilled. It's mostly for older children (5 yrs. & up), but you never know! It would depend on how you present it to her. It's worth a try and it sure couldn't hurt.
