Toms River Seaport Society

BACKGROUND: If your family is interested in sailboats, the Toms River Seaport Society's museum is worth a quick visit.

The museum is located in a restored carriage house just off the Toms River. The downstairs area now houses the museum's library, store, a display of ship models and boats. Upstairs, more artifacts are on display. On display outside are several sneakboxes - a type of sailboat developed on Barnegat Bay for hunting waterfowl.

On July 17 the society hosts a wooden boat festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in nearby Huddy Park.

INSIDER INFO: While the museum probably isn't worth making a special trip by itself, it is within walking distance of the http://www.oceancountyhistory.org/index.php" target="_blank">Ocean County Historical Society Museum and Huddy Park, which includes a replica of a blockhouse that was the scene of a Revolutionary War battle.

WHERE: The seaport society museum is located at Hooper Avenue and Water Street in Toms River. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Toms+River+Seaport+Society+Toms+River+NJ&sll=39.951777,-74.194064&sspn=0.006991,0.013626&ie=UTF8&hq=Toms+River+Seaport+Society&hnear=Toms+River,+NJ&ll=39.95232,-74.194064&spn=0.006991,0.013626&z=16&iwloc=A" target="_blank">CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS
