We went there this past Thursday. Although I personally found it underwhelming, we did spend the afternoon there. Quite a bit of history and art pertaining to NJ's nautical past, clamming, oyster, cranberry, menhaden, lumber, and iron industries mostly as it pertains to the 'bay' and pine barrens. It's mostly recreations/replicas of actual buildings concentrated around a lagoon. All stroller accessible. There were lots of kids groups coming and going and we may have gotten more out of it if we had a guided tour.

The baby didn't like it much.

And horseshoe crabs have blue blood and are more closely related to arachnids - spiders, ticks, and scopions than actual crabs (crustaceans). Ick.
