Paterson Museum Paterson NJ 07501

            I am very curious about Native American history, I also think gemstones are beautiful and then there are submarines which interest me with the way they explore underwater life. Where can I find a place that I can learn more about all of those things and experience more? The Paterson Museum that's where! Paterson Museum is at 2 Market St #202, Paterson, NJ 07501, open from 10 AM to 4 PM Monday to Friday and 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM on Sundays and Saturdays. Come in for a tour of the industrial history of Paterson and learn about things you never knew would interest you, considering how educational this place is. The museum is located only only 12 minutes from and shares the same city of Paterson NJ.

Tours are based upon appointment so make sure you call and schedule one before you show up. Also make sure you have two dollars to enter the museum if you are over the age of eighteen, since that how much admission is for adults, if you are under eighteen there is no cost to enter.

          Paterson Museum is owned and run by the City of Paterson. It was founded in 1925 by the City of Paterson Library's Board of Trustees when items were donated to the library by local residents. The museum started off in the assembly room of Danforth Public Library, but as the collections grew, more space was needed. The museum had to relocate to Thomas Roger's Locomotive and Machine Shop to fit all of its collections and artifacts.

          At the Paterson Museum you can find things like gem stones, Native American artifacts, a collection of Paterson made firearms of East Coast Instituion and even displays of the first submersibles from John Philip Holland who was known as the Father of the Modern Submarine. If you like art, there is also a beautiful painting collection. Paterson Museum even has a collection of old medicines that was used in the early 1900s. Seeing how far the changes in medicine has come to this day would be interesting, since society did not have most of the things back then that we have today and people did not live as long as they do these days.
