Sea Girt Group Tours Request

The museum is host to dozens of group tours each year.  We offer customized programs for Scouts, veterans groups, senior groups, schools, historical societies, and youth camps.

We are open seven days a week from 10 AM to 3 PM except state holidays.

The museum is only authorized to have 50 people at one time.  We recommend to plan on having any group larger than 50 to be broken down into smaller groups.  

To assist us with coordinating the needs of your group, we request that you fill out and submit the questionnaire below.
