Established in 1927, the Museum of Cape May County is dedicated to preserving the diverse history of Cape May County for future generations. Founded and managed by the Cape May County Historical and Genealogical Society, the museum has been one of the country’s foremost advocates for the preservation and display of local history.
Housed in three historic buildings, the museum features an array of rotating exhibits and displays, child-friendly guided tours, history-related lectures and special events, and a world-renowned genealogical and research library for students and serious historians. Special exhibits include a Colonial period home from the early 1700s, a 1830 Federal period addition, and a barn and carriage shed that showcase county life from Native American times through the 21st century.
Centrally located only minutes from some of the county’s best beaches and tourist attractions, the Cape May County Museum is a fun, educational place to spend quality time with the family.
