Be a part of Hoboken history...
In our small space in one of the oldest buildings on the waterfront, the Hoboken Historical Museum showcases the city’s rich heritage and hosts some of its most popular contemporary events. Through award-winning exhibitions and publications, a dedicated team of professionals and an army of volunteers collaborate to bring interesting aspects of Hoboken’s past to light.
We collect, preserve and interpret artifacts and oral histories, both historic and contemporary, and host guest lectures, films, readings and concerts. Our Upper Gallery features local artists whose work interprets Hoboken and our area in a range of visual media.
Our support comes in part from public grants and fundraising events such as the annual Secret Garden Tour, House Tour, Baby Parade, Heirloom Tomato-Tasting Festival and more. But a major source of our funding comes from donations by local businesses and individual members of the community like you.
