Established in 1986, the Hoboken Historical Museum offers exhibits that preserve and share the history, art, and culture of the city and its relationship with New York, the Hudson River, and the larger world.Exhibits focus on local art, music, history, and business. Given the museum's emphasis on the Hudson River and industry, it seems appropriate that the museum is located within a former Bethlehem Steel machine shop that is also one of the oldest buildings in the area.


  • The museum moved to this location on Hudson Street in 2001.
