Historical Museum, Art Center at Garden Pier now open

Historical Museum exteriorGarden Pier - home to the Atlantic City Historical Museum and Atlantic City Art Center - officially reopened in June 2014. The Pier had been closed since October 2012 due to damage suffered during Hurricane Sandy.
The Atlantic City Historical Museum, operated by the Atlantic City Free Public Library, showcases the culturally diverse, exciting history of Atlantic City in a nostalgic timeline. Visitors can enjoy exhibits of Mr. Peanut, sand sculptures, Miss America and casinos – along with vintage photographs and local artifacts. Also, new exhibits detailing the history of Garden Pier, Summer of 1964 and Atlantic City’s sports history are on display.
The Atlantic City Art Center updated its galleries last month by bringing in an exhibit from the African-American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey.
AAHMSNJ founder Ralph Hunter is presenting “The Northside: The Way We Were.” The exhibit highlights Atlantic City’s African-American Northside community from the 1930s to ’60s, including Club Harlem, Sarah Spencer Washington, churches and hotels, and African-American firsts in the city.
Please call (609) 347-5839 for more information.
