2022: Lucy the Elephant is currently under construction for a major restoration project that will replace her entire metal exterior. While under construction, the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff is the main priority, and therefore the park surrounding Lucy the Elephant and Guided Tours through Lucy the Elephant is temporarily CLOSED during construction. It is anticipated that tours will resume Memorial Day Weekend 2022.

Our Personal Take...

In 2016, we stopped into the famous seaside landmark. We took the small tour, watched a few videos, and truly enjoyed every moment and every inch of this fun Jersey Shore attraction.
