The mission of Mahwah Museum is to preserve and present the history of the community and its connection to the region. Museum exhibits display information about the history of Mahwah and the surrounding community. The Mahwah Museum offers a series of programs and events, both in person and virtual, including Gallery Talks presented by volunteers who have researched and created the exhibits, a lecture series featuring programs related to local history given by distinguished amateur and professional historians, and workshops on topics relevant to the museum’s mission. In addition, small group tours are offered for schools, scouts, and other interested groups.
The museum’s collection of artifacts, photographs, historical records, and documents are carefully preserved, documented, and cataloged and are available by appointment to historians and researchers.
By encouraging discovery, understanding, and appreciation of the region’s heritage, the museum provides perspective for the present and the future.
