Welcome to our New, Improved Website

Welcome to the Hoboken Historical Museum’s new website and blog! It’s been completely revamped, thanks to a generous grant of $28,788 from the NJ Cultural Trust through its 2016 Institutional and Financial Stabilization Grant program.

Working with the talented Carrie Chatterson Studio, the Museum convened a committee to review the site’s layout and identify the areas that Museum members and the general public need to access the most to prioritize navigation to that content. The new website design also offers a new mobile device-friendly interface to reach a wider audience via smartphones and tablets.

The project included setting up a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system for managing the growing archive of video, audio and photographic files from the Museum’s historical exhibits and related events. We will be adding of this content to the website for those who can’t attend in person and for future audiences researching Hoboken and New Jersey history.

We hope you find the site easy to navigate, and loaded with interesting content to explore. Let us know if you have any suggestions for improvement at pr @ hobokenmuseum.org.
