Art Gallery
“I almost hesitated to call this place a museum, because it's really a made-over string of oyster shipping sheds, spared and restored and richly interpreted just so folks wouldn't forget one of the critical industries of Southern New Jersey. You can still enjoy some of the best Delaware Bay oysters around at the Oyster Cracker cafe (limited opening times--you really want to check ahead) but the draw is the scene, looking out over Delaware Bay at the mouth of the Maurice River--poignant and beautiful in its reminder of how many working lives were sustained by this industry once upon a time. The "tall ship" AJ Meerwald also docks here and takes trips along the East Coast. Sign on! ”

“The museum, open most Saturdays, has a variety of exhibits illustrating the history of Bowers Beach (founded 1764) and the many changes. There's a walking tour available that will let you see just how the town has changed. ”

“Wonderful little stop to have breakfast or lunch. Little hometown Fortescue fishing stop where you can eat, pick up your bait at the bait shop, and also pick up a souvenir and neighborhood newspaper. You will sit on a little bench at the counter and can ask all about the fish biting. Always breakfast with a smile. Delicious sandwiches and soup. Tell owner Betty Higbee or daughter Cindy that "Philly Carol sent you." ”
