In 2005, the Board of Trustees for the Hoboken Historical Museum formulated a Vision Statement for the Museum with one of the stated goals being to secure additional space for permanent exhibitions to highlight Hoboken's rich and varied history in addition to conducting programs in support of the Museum's educational and cultural mission. The Board of Trustees believes that the additional space is essential to the Museum's continued growth as a vibrant, dynamic, all-inclusive and exciting organization fully involved in the educational and cultural life of the City of Hoboken.
The Museum's Vision Statement and expansion plans were presented to Mayor David Roberts, State Senator Bernard Kenny, and City Council representatives. Both Mayor Roberts and Senator Kenny have been particularly supportive in trying to secure space for the Museum's expansion in an historic site, however while these efforts continue the Trustees feel that other more timely opportunities might become available to the Museum if its space expansion needs are broadly publicized.
With this in mind the Board of Trustees would be pleased to welcome inquiries from property owners and developers who would be interested in discussing how the Hoboken Historical Museum could enhance their property or development as it continues to serve the community of Hoboken with its educational and cultural programs and activities. The Trustees also invite inquiries from its membership, supporters and many visitors from all around the City who have ideas or a suggestion on how the Museum might secure the additional space it seeks.
