Educational Visits and Small Group Tours

The Mahwah Museum offers small group tours to fit a variety of needs.

 The Mahwah Museum and Donald Cooper Model Railroad are now CLOSED for the Summer. We will reopen in September, 30 2017. The Old Station Museum and Caboose will be open June 25, 2017- September 17, 2017 Sundays 2-4 pm 1871 Old Station Lane Mahwah, NJ 07430.


Our docents are happy to provide tours of our museum for Grades 3-12 on a day and time that suits your class schedule (except Wednesdays from 1-4 when we are open to the public). Whether using our current exhibits or customizing your visit to supplement your curriculum, we strive to share our love of history with you and your students!

Scout Leaders

Scout leaders of boys and girls in Grades 3-12 are invited to bring their scouts to the museum for a private tour from September to June. In addition, scout groups from Grades K-12 are welcome to a tour of our 1871 train station and 1929 caboose on Old Station Lane, just west of the current train station, from April to October outside of normal visiting hours. By customizing our tours to meet your badge requirements, our docents hope to provide your scouts with an interesting and educational experience!
