This museum is tucked into a parking garage, along with the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University. The memorabilia is well laid out, and the guides are knowledgeable. Admission is free, but they do accept donations.

It's a small museum with free admission, some interesting featured exhibits. Not sure we really understood the direction they were going with their choice of exhibits. It takes about 10 minutes to walk through.
