Most kids love to climb up into the elephant. (It's only one story) Note it can be stuffy inside in the summer, but it's a fun sight. There's a few restaurants nearby if you're there around lunch or dinner time.

I have been going here since forever. The tour guides are always wonderful, and even when you don't take a tour, it's always nice to see what color her nail's are painted! Great for kids and history buffs!

Worth seeing, but not much to see. Tour is about 20 minutes. Cost is $8 per person. Reasonably priced restaurant across the parking lot.

Everyone must see Lucy when visiting Margate or the down beach area (Atlantic City, Ventnor, Longport) In NJ. When was the last time you saw something this BIG? Never? I bet! Spend a couple of bucks and walk through the insides of the elephant. Afterwards,...More

I believe it was $8.00 for the tour up inside Lucy. You can visit her and the very nice gift shop for nothing! When we went (off season) you could park right in front of her, and walk to the beach. I got a couple of cute... More
