Come to the Newark Museum to immerse yourself in a world of art, beauty and innovation. Exhibits are not restricted to fine art but also include installation art and artifact exhibits. Besides the quintessential features of a museum, the Newark Museum goes a step further to make your experience extraordinary. From a well-equipped library open to the public by appointment to curator-led museum tour podcasts that can be downloaded from their website, the Museum endeavors to take the visitor on a great trip. It also conducts art appreciation workshops for kids and adults.
A great, accessible museum. The Ballatine House was beuatifully decorated for the holidays and our kids had a great time trying to find all of the birds used in the decorations. Small, kid-friendly planetarium perfect for a first planetarium experience and enjoyable for anyone. Small but significant art collection. Animal exhibits are small but well done. Something for everyone here. Family membership is a great deal.
Small but very complete, great value, my kid loved it, i would call it a very "family oriented museum" , only problem i have is that they won't tell you that parking is not included, watch out for it, hard to find parking space in the surrounding area.
The gift shop is lovely but ridiculouly overpriced item.
