• Overview

    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. Exhibits change every 6 - 12 months, and have included Hoboken's immigration history, the extraordinary Stevens family, Hoboken in WWI, the 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. Admission is $5. 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 related curriculum tailored for school class visits and groups of youngsters.
