The Museum of Cape May County
Where History Makes Its Home!

WELCOME

 
Virtual Tour

Located in three historic buildings, the museum is a treasure trove of exhibits showcasing county life from Native American times through the twenty first century. The 1704 Colonial period home, 1830 Federal period addition, carriage shed and 1780 barn offer a fascinating look at how life in the county has evolved. Established in 1927, The Museum of Cape May County has been our county’s foremost advocate for the acquisition, preservation and display of local history. With guided tours, rotating exhibits, lectures and special events, the museum offers something for the whole family including children. The museum also houses an outstanding genealogical and research library for the serious historian.

Centrally located only minutes from county beaches and attractions, the museum is a fun, educational place to spend some quality time.  A great beach alternative - "Cool when it's hot, dry when it's not".
