Property Description

The Hoboken Historical Museum (est. 1986) collects and displays artifacts in themed exhibitions on Hoboken history and offers educational programs, lectures, tours and hosts films and plays. Recent exhibits have included a focus on Hoboken's relationship with the Hudson River and its role as a sweets producer. Other exhibits included shipping history, an anniversary of the movie "On the Waterfront," the city's contributions to the world of music, and its struggle and revival through the 1970s. Our upper gallery space features six local artists' work per year. We are open six days a week in a 2,000-square-foot space in one of the oldest buildings on Hoboken's waterfront, the former Bethlehem Steel machine shop, now known as the Shipyard. We also publish books and walking-tour maps, as well as a series of oral history chapbooks documenting the diverse communities of Hoboken's recent past. Each exhibit offers a tailored curriculum for local schools and groups of youngsters.
