The Asbury Park Museum is now open Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons from Noon to 6 PM (8 PM on Saturdays) in it’s temporary location in the 5th Avenue Pavilion on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. It will be there until March 10, after which we’ll be looking for a permanent home. Admission is FREE but donations are welcomed. The Museum houses exhibits on the history of Asbury Park, Legendary Locals and a special exhibit on Asbury Park’s West Side Music (1880 – 1980), assembled and curated by Charlie & Pamela Horner of Classic Urban Harmony. Music fans will find a lot there to see including Asbury Park’s contributions to Spirituals, Gospel, Stride Piano, Black Vaudeville, Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Doo Wop and Soul Music. Great, rare photos, record, sheet music, posters, uniforms and more. We (Charlie & Pam Horner) are there most Sundays. See our What’s New Page on the Exhibit for more details.
This Saturday, the Asbury Park Museum welcomes a visit from Stormin Norman Seldin, who is playing across the street at the Wonder Bar as part of the Light of Day celebration! Norman is performing from 2:30 to 3:15 pm and will come by the Museum after his performance.
