This was actually a sweet outing for a date, no I would not call it a Museum per se. It really seems to be more of the love project of the curator and possibly some friends. It was quite interesting seeing some of the photographs of the history of Hoboken, and they had some videos setup that, had we had... More

A lecture about black people and ww1 and how they were treated. Free admission. Excellent lecture very well delivered and the message was clear - blacks got a raw deal in ww1 and particularly from general Pershing!

A block from the riverfront promenade, this place will give you a sense of the rich history of Hoboken. I'd also visit the library at Steven's Institute a short walk away for info on the Steven's family contributions to the city.

Visited the Hoboken Museum to view the current display of Frank Sinatra memorabilia and listen to recordings and watch films on screen and tv. Interesting place. Also some nice souvenirs for sale. The place is small but worth a visit. There is a request for admission fee / donation at entrance. There is a current arrangement that if you park... More

The Hoboken Historical Museum has a historical exhibit, but it was all in storage when this reviewer was there, replaced with an exhibit on native boy Francis "Frank" Sinatra. This was interesting enough, with a large collection of original posters for many of his terrific motion pictures, many of which are non-musical, and all very enjoyable - this reviewer was... More

We went here to see the Frank Sinatra exhibit. It was interesting:) This is a very small museum, focusing on all things "Hoboken". The staff is very nice, the admission price is very low, and if you are in the area, why not take some time to look around here?

Three of us visited on Thursday afternoon. And we all enjoyed it. The museum is a small space, with an upstairs art gallery. Currently (January 2016), it is featuring an exhibit in honor of Frank SInatra's centennial. There are a number of photo exhibits, each highlighting a part of SInatra's life (his early days in Hoboken, his radio work, films,... More
