Step into the world where history and fiction collide.

Drawing from its collection of Victorian era fashion and accessories, the Meadowlands Museum has paired with Jeff Mach Events to present a summer of gears, clockworks, top hats, and all things steampunk. The display includes Victorian pocket watches, top hats, jewelry, parasols, and a wedding dress from the museum’s collection, and objects on loan from steampunk crafters and makers, including Heather E. Hutsell’s “Time Jumper” dress, cameos by Corvus Creations, pocket watches and chainmail creations by Caruso Kith Kin & Co, and clothing loaned by Professor Adam Smasher. In addition, the photography of Jennifer Haggerty and John T. Riley are on display. Further programming is provided by Professor Adam Smasher, Baron Maximilian Von Zipple, Professor Scott Calvin, Professor Mark P. Donnelly, musical group The Eternal Frontier, and musician Jeff Mach.

This special exhibit is on view Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am – 4pm, and culminates in our annual Grand Victorian Tea on Sunday, September 28.
