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 child- friendly guided tours, rotating exhibits, lectures and special events, the museum offers something for the whole family. The museum is also home to an outstanding genealogical and research library for the serious historian. Housed in four historic buildings, the museum is a treasure trove of exhibits showcasing county life from Native American times through the 21st century. The 1704 Colonial period home, 1830 Federal period addition, 1780 barn, carriage shed and the 1850 Farmor children's cottage, each offers a fascinating look at how life in this seaside community has evolved.
