“Fun and educational!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I work just across the street from this museum so I have visited it many times. It changes its exibits often enough so you don't get bored. It isn't a large space but cozy enough and worth the visit. It also has story time for children every other week at no charge and is located in a great spot to check out the rest of Hoboken.

“Great museum for a quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The Hoboken Historical Museum is small but rotates its exhibits to keep its content fresh. I especially enjoyed the "Heaven, Hell or Hoboken" exhibit about U.S. troops setting sale from Hoboken to fight in WWI.

“Great local museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Wonderful place. A block from the waterfront, in a great neighborhood. Always something interesting going on there, from kids shows, to live artist lectures to great displays. They have events year round, such as the tomato tasting event, ect. Please make sure to drop a few bucks in the bucket when you visit if you're not a member. They rely on patron support, and really provide a wonderful cultural experience in Hoboken.
