Description

The museum presents its programs in partnership with city and gallery spaces. Currently operating as a museum "without walls" the museum's private art collection is composed of Regional historical and local artwork that includes the Bergen Museum's Stefan Knapp Mural (once displayed on the Alexander's building in Paramus and also known as the Alexander's Mural), paintings, photographs, and two Mastodon skeletons.

Mission

The Museum's Board of Trustees holds a clear vision and works to provide leadership in developing new programs and building collaborative relationships to benefit the future of arts, sciences, and culture in Bergen County and the surrounding region.

The museum has enriched community cultural capital since 1956 through art exhibits, science expositions, educational and outreach programs. We strive to promote community partnerships.

History

n 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 is incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization.

Educational Programs

"In addition to its role in stimulating creativity, a museum can serve as a stimulus for local economic activity because as an attraction it draws individuals to a community. Museums also attract creative individuals to a community, and these individuals can have a profound economic impact. Such individuals can provide a boost to regional tourism or make a lasting impact by relocating to the community more permanently." (Economic Impact Analysis of Cultural Institutions M. Halsey).

BMAS continues to enrich the community's cultural capital by engaging significant parts of society in its ongoing exhibits, outreach and educational programs. These hold intrinsic value and with its programs enrich community cultural capital regardless of social status.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) recognizes the importance of regional culture and regional art. Their vision is ?a democratic society where communities and individuals thrive with broad public access to knowledge, cultural heritage, lifelong learning.
