Been wanting to see this museum for a while. It does give a thin overview of some aspects of Paterson. You will see a locomotive, some early fire engine equipment, some early Colt rifles and handguns.... more »
This place is a little gem. It isn't large, but it is packed with interesting historical exhibits and items showcasing the fascinating back story on Paterson. There is a little something for most nerds - trains, industry, military, guns, vintage medicine, Founding Fathers, etc. There are 2 locomotives parked outside! It is located one block from the Great Falls park, so this could be a nice afternoon break from walking around the falls. There was no air conditioning, though, so it was a little warm inside. Plus side, no crowds. It was free to enter, suggested donation $2 per adult.
Will give it 4 or 5 stars on the October 9 th after Bud Abbott's Birthday celebration, but only if Lou Costello's home town Paterson New Jersey has him prominently represented.
Super friendly staff and rangers. A must visit if you're in New York state, to see how and what Alexander Hamilton started the city.
nice little museum that is heavy on artifacts from its industrial days.Also the sub holland and railroad items.However for a history museum it is curious that it leaves out the labor strife,race riots,hurricane carter ,etc. They have costello but not allen ginsburg. .Seems to be a bit of selective memory.
Great little museum. See artifacts from Patterson's days as the industrial center of the country like Colt pistols, locomotives and silk production. Don't miss the Great Falls!
