It's a small and free museum capturing the life of pre-Columbus Lenni Lenape living in the area, and more importantly the industrial past of the city. It's a nice add-on to visiting Paterson Falls. Th... more »
Nice local museum in Paterson by the Paterson Falls. It is mainly about the industrial history of Paterson. The best part is that it's free.
It was nice. Thank you! Its free ! But you can help with anything. 👍💸📽
Great local museum with plenty of interesting exhibits. Located in the historic Roger's Locomotive Works there are exhibits covering the city of Paterson and its rise as the first United States city of the Industrial Revolution. They outline the growth from its role in the Revolutionary War and its becoming a powerhouse in the Civil War era.
Having been raised in New Jersey, my husband and I decided to go here and see what could possibly be here. To our surprise this place was a delight and it should be a great place to take the kids to learn a little bit about the area.
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.
