The Mahwah Museum Palisades Amusement Park Exhibit 2019-2020

Now open at the Mahwah Museum, "Palisades Amusement Park In Miniature." All the magic that was Palisades has been reborn in this new and exciting exhibit. The working model of the park captures the thrills and memories of Palisades. Plus many great photos, posters, memorabilia... all part of this exhibit which will remain on display until June 2020.


On loan to the Mahwah Museum is the Cyclone roller coater car... a perfect photo opportunity! The car was created using the original front name plate from Palisades' Cyclone (only 1 of 2 still in existence) and the original seating assembly. Here are a few of the folks that have enjoyed the ride so far.

Come to the museum. Take your photo (or we will be happy to take it for you) and email us the photo to be added here on the official PAP website. We will be adding new photos to this page weekly. So drop on by to the Mahwah Museum and join in on the fun.


The Mahwah Museum is temporarily closed to the public. We are doing this out of concern for both our patrons and docents and to support the efforts to encourage social distance to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We very much hope that the Museum will open as soon as it is safe to do so.

Keep well and safe everybody!

Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ. Open Wednesdays and weekends from 1-4 PM.
