The New Jersey Maritime Museum was constructed and furnished privately with a 42-year collection of maritime memorabilia, and by the loan or donation of countless shipwreck artifacts by the diving community. No financial aid or grants were obtained from any governmental agency in this endeavor. Although we will be applying for all available grants to help offset the considerable overhead of such a facility, donations by the general public are solicited – and much appreciated – to help cover a host of related expenses.
Additionally, we welcome the donation or loan of New Jersey maritime-related items, shipwreck artifacts, books and photographs, for which a receipt is issued and insurance provided.
The future of the New Jersey Maritime Museum is contingent on the support and generosity of those who recognize the importance of preserving the rich maritime history of New Jersey. Thank you for your support!
