I've driven past Roebling many times, on my way to the NJ Turnpike. Only yesterday did I get off the main roads and explore Roebling and visit the museum. Time well spent! Excellent museum - well done 20+ minute video, informative exhibits, knowledgeable staff. There's attention given to "The Brooklyn Bridge Guy" of course, but even more to the wire/cable... More

The museum's exhibits tell the story of the Roebling family, its company in Trenton and Roebling, and the workers, products and iconic bridges that changed the face of America. The museum is housed in the restored gate house to the 200 acres of land that were the grounds of the former steel mill. The village, one of the most intact... More

I live in Roebling but am not originally from town. When I saw the walking tour come up on facebook I knew I wanted in! It did not disappoint. I love this town even more after taking the tour. The tour guides were full of information and shared personal stories of the town. I would absolutely go on this same... More

Great tour, fascinating. George relived his childhood living in Roebling. The tour allowed the visitor to imagine living in the 60's where the steel mill flourished. The homes are intact as they were thirty years ago. The community is vibrant reflecting the influence of the Roebling Family

Had a great time on the walking tour with Doug and George, having lived in Roebling as well as my parents, Grandparents, and Great Grandparents, it was great to learn history I wasn't' even aware of! George even knew my Great Grandfather and it was awesome to hear stories about him! The museum is small, but very interesting and educational.... More

My husband took a group to tour the museum. Everyone was local and was fascinated by the history. Home of the "Slinky".

This museum proved to be an out-of-the-way treasure. Outdoors, some of the huge original equipment was on display. Indoors, we watched a 20-minute video about the Roebling family, the importance of the wire rope industry and the impact of immigrant workers who helped change the world. The Roebling family not only employed hard-working immigrants from Europe, but helped them in... More

Re-use of the old gatehouse building was well planned and thought out. The exhibits link the history of the family’s business and the development of the events in American History. Yes, the Roebling Co is famous for the Brooklyn and Golden Gate Bridges (to name a few). They also manufactured everything from window screen to aircraft control cables and everything... More

Roebling and his family were amazing. An immigrant from Prussia (i.e. Germany), he made a huge contribution to his new country. I didn't realize that he built the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the Brooklyn Bridge and many others. The major Roebling plants were in Trenton NJ and Roebling NJ. Foreign competition in the steel business eventually shut them... More

Though the museum is not very large, it houses wonderful memorabilia of the Roebling family and the many projects with which they were involved. Don't miss the the video. It not only provides a wonderful overview of the family and the company, but includes oral histories of some local residents of the company town. We were lucky enough to have... More
