Museum open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. seven days a week
The Atlantic City Historical Museum – presented by the Atlantic City Free Public Library – will be open to the public seven days a week, effective Oct. 1. The museum’s hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
Since the library assumed management of the museum in August 2012 and reopened it later that month, attendance has steadily increased. More than 1,000 people visited the museum during the six-day stretch from Sept. 17-22.
“We’re excited by the interest people have shown in the museum and the feedback that we have received,” Library Director Maureen Sherr Frank said. “The attendance figures continue to rise as more people become aware that the museum is open once again.”
The Atlantic City Historical Museum showcases the culturally diverse, exciting history of Atlantic City in a nostalgic timeline. The museum recently added an “Atlantic City Experience: 1920s” exhibit, which includes photos and information about Enoch “Nucky” Johnson, as well as some of the city landmarks and people synonymous with that decade. Visitors can also enjoy exhibits of Mr. Peanut, Kentucky Avenue and Miss America – plus vintage photographs and local artifacts.
