This exhibit will feature rare archival photos and artifacts from the world's largest outdoorsaltwater swimming pool. Opened on June 8th, 1913, this pool with its beaches, waves and waterfall was a large part of the Palisades Amusement Park experience. The exhibit will also feature photos and artifacts of the real life park employees who are featured in Emmy Award winning writer Alan Brennert's new book Palisades Park. This book, published by St. Martin's Press, will be released on April 9th, 2013. Alan held a presentation and reading from his book at the museum as well as signing his book.
