Arriving by PATH
The PATH train will bring you to NJ Transit's Hoboken Terminal. You'll be at the south end of town. To get from the PATH to the Museum, take either Washington Street bus (#126 or #89) to 13th St, then head east one block. The Museum is located in the old Shipyard Machine Shop at 13th Street & Hudson Street. Or, take a stroll; it only takes about 20 – 30 minutes to walk up the Hoboken waterfront, or historic residential Hudson Street, which is lined with some of Hoboken’s grandest homes, or “The Avenue,” aka Washington Street, lined with shops and restaurants.
