If you'll be traveling to Jackson, NJ soon, you may want to pay the Paterson Museum a visit.
The museum is located Passaic County, was founded in 1925, and is operated by the city of Paterson. There are a number of interesting items in the museum, including Native American artifacts, old locomotives and guns, and gemstones that are native to the region. There are also a number of beautiful paintings at the museum; however, many of these works have been put in personal hold to make room from some of the other display items.
One of the most fascinating features of the Paterson Museum is its medicine collection. These medicines were used during the 1900s, and the medicine covers are beautifully decorated. There are also paintings of hospital assistants, along with information on how the infirmary in the area has grown and developed over the years.
While you're in Jackson, you may also want to check out the amusement parks, attractions and shopping that the city has to offer. After a visit to Paterson Museum, you and your family can enjoy a Six Flags Safari, or learn more about the animals at Howling Woods Farm, and finished off the day with a little shopping at Jackson Premium Outlets.
Of course, you can also check out these attractions before heading to Paterson Museum, so you can spend the remainder of the day learning about the rich history of the city.
