Mahwah Museum Open
At the Mahwah Museum the popular exhibit “Les Paul in Mahwah” is open again and continues until June 2013. The Museum is located at 201 Franklin Turnpike. The Museum is open weekends and Wednesdays from 1-5 p.m. Admission is $5 and museum members and children under 12 are free. Visit www.mahwahmuseum.org or call 201-512-0099 for more information.
Visitors to the Les Paul exhibit have a chance to learn about Les Paul, long-time Mahwah resident, inventor, musician and self-taught engineer. The exhibit also has several new items, making another visit a must for those who have already enjoyed “Les Paul in Mahwah.” “ECHO,” an M. Hohner harmonica used by Les Paul during the early years of his career is a new feature of the display. Continuing as part of the exhibit is “The Log,” a fascinating visual of how a solid body guitar was built.
The Museum’s exhibits, “Nike Base in Mahwah: Nuclear Warheads in Our Backyards" and "Homespun History: Quilts, Coverlets and Fabric Arts" also continue through June, 2013.
The Museum’s Donald Cooper Railroad, the Museum’s HO-scale model railroad, is now fully functional with new routes, a fully operating yard and enhanced scenery. Engineers of all ages may come and visit the ever-changing railroad world.
The Mahwah Museum receives operating support from the New Jersey Historical commission in the Department of State.
