However, something that's often overlooked in Jersey is our museums.

Jersey is home to some pretty great museums like the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, the Doo Wop Experience Museum in Wildwood, and the New Jersey Museum of Transportation in Wall.

Spend A Day Checking Out New Jersey's Industrial Museum

An industrial museum may not sound interesting at first glance, but once you take a look at what it has to offer you may be singing another tune.

You'll take a trip through time exploring some of the earliest inventions that are now common all over the world.

You'll travel back to the 1800s and see some steam machinery that helped power the industrial revolution.

The Museum also features displays of historic products that may have been commonplace one hundred years ago in Jersey but seem strange and alien now.

You'll also get to see a whole exhibit on trains, which is the coolest part of the museum, coming from a train enthusiast.
