The Hoboken Historical Museum (est. 1986) collects and displays artifacts in themed exhibitions on Hoboken history and offers educational programs, lectures, tours and hosts films and plays. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Recent exhibits have included an exhibit honoring Frank Sinatra in his centennial year, Hoboken's role in World War I, the city's shipping history, an anniversary exhibit of the movie “On the Waterfront,” the city’s contributions to the world of music, and its struggle and revival through the 1970s. Our Upper Gallery art space features six local artists’ work per year. 

HHM also publishes books and walking-tour maps, as well as a series of oral history chapbooks documenting the diverse communities of Hoboken’s recent past. Each exhibit offers a tailored curriculum for local schools groups. 

We are open six days a week in a 2,000-square-foot space in one of the oldest buildings on Hoboken’s waterfront, the former Bethlehem Steel machine shop, now known as the Shipyard.
