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! ”
