  • 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 l...  read more »
  • One of the nice things about Silk city is the history behind the town. Is good to see the good side of Paterson. 
  • We LOVED this museum! It was filled to the rooftop with interesting histories and tidbits about the town and the people from it! We spent a good two hours there at least, and LOVED every minute of it!...  read 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.
  • 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!
  • Paterson has everything and some things it needs to get rid of patetson is so rich on history and u can see it here
