Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum – A Family Fun Jersey Shore Destination #Tuckerton

One of our family’s favorite things to do each summer is to plan a list of day trips that we can enjoy together.  It’s one of our favorite ways to get away without too much effort and the kids get excited about visiting new places we have never been.  Every year I go on a mission to find some new destinations for our list and this year we were super excited to add Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum as a new adventure.

Located about 1 1/2 hours from Delaware County and just 30 miles North of Atlantic City,  the Tuckerton Museum is one of the largest grassroots maritime museums in the country. Located in the Jersey Shore’s historic town of Tuckerton, this museum is chuck full of history, exhibits, hands on activities, play spots for the kids and more. Throughout the year, the museum hosts fun filled events such as the upcoming Bayman’s Seafood & Music Festival, the Red Wine & Blues Festival, NJ Maritime Heritage Festival and Antique & Classic Boat Festival and a Seaport Antique Car & Truck Festival.   My family and I were thrilled to be invited to attend the Privateers and Pirates festival last weekend – and I am pretty certain that it made this already awesome museum even that much more fun for the kids.

After meeting up with some of our favorite blogger friends, we grabbed our treasure maps and started on our adventure.  There is nothing like a treasure map – with a promise of a treasure at the end – to peak the kids’ interest!

Along the way, the kids enjoyed crafts

 
Chatted with a pirate (and his amazing talking parrot!)

 
Walked the plank

 
Learned all about cannons,
 

Enjoyed some music and shopping

Hung out with more pirates,

Toured the Lighthouse and Surf Museum

 
Checked out the gorgeous view from atop the lighthouse…
 

What to do next??
 
  
Walked along the boardwalk and enjoyed some of the sites
 
Played Mini Golf

Enjoyed some playtime
 

Learned how boats are made

And made their very own pirate ships!

All in all, we had an awesome day!  We were so impressed with all that this fun Jersey Shore destination had to offer.  What a perfect family day trip – and a great way to not only spend some quality time – but to learn so much while visiting!

Of course, my kids could not wait to turn in their treasure maps and claim their treasure! 

Interested in visiting Tuckerton Museum? A visit to the Tuckerton Museum would be perfect for not only families, but school trips, homeschoolers and boys and girl scout troops.  It is also a great day trip while on vacation at the Jersey shore.  There is so much to see and do – with plenty of hands on fun for everyone!

The museum is open daily year round 10 AM – 5 PM, rain or shine.  Admission is $8 for Adults, $6 for Seniors, $5 for kids ages 5-12 and Kids under 5 are FREE!  For more information about the museum, attractions and festivals, visit them on the web at www.tuckertonseaport.org

If you are especially fond of pirate fun, be sure to check out Tuckerton’s Haunted Seaport coming October 24th, 25th & 26th just in time for Halloween!

Many thanks to the Tuckerton Museum and Real Mom Media for inviting us!  We had such a great time and we look forward to visiting again soon!
