A great place to live and work

New Jersey’s Hall of Fame is a digital collection of New Jersey citizens – past and present – who have made contributions to society and the world. Nominees are elected to the Hall of Fame by public vote in the categories of Arts and Entertainment, Enterprise, Historical, Sports, and General, and an Induction Ceremony occurs once a year. Now in its sixth year, the Hall of Fame has more than 60 members including:

  • Grover Cleveland
  • Whitney Houston
  • Joe Piscopo
  • Dionne Warwick
  • Christopher Reeve
  • Tony Bennett
  • John Travolta
  • Danny DeVito
  • Frankie Valli
  • Woodrow Wilson
  • Bud Abbott and Lou Costello
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Jon Bon Jovi 
  • Jerry Lewis
  • Shaquille O’Neal
  • Phil Rizzuto
  • Buzz Aldrin
  • Clara Barton
  • Yogi Berra
  • Thomas Edison
  • Albert Einstein
  • Vince Lombardi
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Meryl Streep
  • Harriet Tubman

 

The digital collection is complemented by a mobile museum enclosed in a 53 foot long double expandable trailer which expands to 850 square feet that is nearly 14 feet high. Inside, there are multimedia exhibitions about how New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees have made a difference as innovators and leaders.  The mobile museum travels throughout the State.

You can see the mobile museum from now until January 26th at the Newark Museum at 49 Washington Street in Newark. On January 28th, it will be part of Super Bowl festivities at the Prudential Center at 165 Mulberry Street in Newark. To see a complete schedule, click here.
