The Barnegat Light Museum is housed in Barnegat Light’s former one-room schoolhouse. The original school was established in 1902 and served the town for almost 50 years, teaching the “three R’s” to the children of the northern end of Long Beach Island until 1951. In 1954, in our Borough’s 50th year, the schoolhouse was dedicated as the town’s museum.
This unique small museum stands in the shadow of the Barnegat Lighthouse, the second oldest on the Northeastern seaboard. The old school building is an exciting example of period architecture. Still, it also contains a remarkably varied array of exhibits relating to the history of the town, the fishing industry, and Long Beach Island—including being the home of the Lighthouse’s original first-order lens.
Visit Barnegat Light! Climb the Lighthouse and view today’s world in a spectacular panoramic scene. Then visit our museum and step back into yesterday’s slower-paced but wonderful world. We guarantee your experience will be memorable.
