5th St. and Central Ave., Barnegat Light , NJ 08006, United States

Explore 90 miles of sandy beaches, then take a look around the 150-year-old Barnegat Lighthouse. The centerpiece of the museum is the lighthouse's 1856 Fresnel lens, fabricated in Paris by Henri Le Paute and composed of more than 1,000 individual prisms fitted into a massive iron frame. Outfitted with a new lens in 2009, it now shines again after 80 years out of commission.
