Directions to Roebling Museum

The Museum is located at 100 2nd Avenue in Roebling, NJ. It is readily accessible from the Riverline. The museum is located a mere 1000 from the Roebling stop of the train, and is the building on the huge parklike lot with the giant wheel that is located right next to the train stop. If you are traveling by vehicle, the museum can be reached by traveling on Rt. 130 and turning West at Hornberger Avenue. You travel just over ¼ mile and cross over the railroad tracks, past the train station and 2nd Avenue is immediately in front of you. The Museum is 500 feet down the street and the only building on the right side of the street. However, there is access to a parking lot right at the railroad tracks. You need to drive past the back of the train station and follow the signs further back to the Museum parking area.

If you are using Rt. 295, then you use exit 52, then you head west towards Florence. You travel 2 miles until you reach Rt. 130. At the light, you make a right turn and head north and travel ¾ of a mile to the next light, which is Hornberger Avenue. Make a left turn here and follow the same directions to the Museum.
