In 1956 a new museum was formed to provide a center for the purpose of stimulating youth and adult interest in the arts and sciences. The founding board of directors opened a location on Fort Lee Road in Teaneck. In 1969, the Museum moved to the location at East Ridgewood and Fairview Avenues in Paramus. The Museum's trustees have relocated the Museum to the lower level of the Bergen Mall, Paramus, NJ. The Museum is incorporated as 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization.
