The Historical Museum in Atlantic City

The Atlantic City Museum is situated on the Garden Pier, which is almost directly opposite the new Revel Casino and very close to The Showboat Casino too. The museum houses information and artifacts relating to Atlantic City's unique cultural, economic and historical development.

It's Free!

Yes, the museum is free. This makes it a great place to take the family, meaning that you can come and go as you please. As you would expect, donations are always gratefully accepted and appreciated.

Mr Peanut

One of the major attractions of the museum is Mr Peanut - a famous icon of Atlantic City and one of the attractions that the kids really love.

Of course, once tempted in by Mr Peanut, there are so many other things to see, that visitors tend to stay with their families and enjoy all the other things on offer, especially the exhibits about Prohibition, the magic of Kentucky Avenue and the great storm of 1962.
