Charles Muth Museum

The Museum

The Charles J. Muth Museum at Hinchliffe connects visitors to the rich history and legacy of the stadium site. Visitors feel a sense of pride when they realize the stadium’s impact locally and nationally. A visit to the Museum will reveal the stories of Hinchliffe heroes like baseball hall of famer, Larry Doby. These stories help to create a fresh sense of ownership for an entirely new generation of stadium attendees. The Museum's mission is intentional about cementing that sense of belonging and connection.

In December 2022, Montclair State University announced that the Charles J. Muth Museum at Hinchliffe had received a transformational donation, and that the University would be partnering with Hinchliffe Stadium developers to make the museum a community and educational hub. Charles Muth, alum of Montclair State University, class of 1977, said of his sizeable donation, “My roots in Paterson go back many generations. I grew up and attended schools only blocks from the iconic Hinchliffe Stadium and, like many others, have fond memories of attending events there. The opportunity to work alongside Montclair State University on the Stadium revitalization project presented a terrific way for me to give back.” Montclair State University oversees the educational programming for the museum.
