Every time I go there is a great experience. Great exhibitions. I love the gift shop since there is always something new that is hard to find somewhere else.

Yes, Newark is the car theft capitol of the world. That's why you use their reasonably priced adjacent parking lot. Yes, the portions at the lunch are small. That's why you bring a sandwich and order a drink and a soup or salad. They collected American Art when no other museum did, and now have one of the best collections... More

If you wet there soon, they have a really good Norman Rockwell exhibit that takes up 2 rooms. There is one that is all the magazine covers from the Evening Post and another large area with very well done explanations of painting and prints in larger pieces. We like Norman but also thought that the exhibit was well done. We... More

The Newark Museum has a good assortment of displays and a great staff. They are very helpful and happy to provide information about the displays. There are also free tours available at designated times. The museum offers several different discounts to different groups. Rutgers Newark students get in free. With or without the discount, the cost is reasonable and worth... More

Do not miss this great exhibit! A rare opportunity to see and feel the work of this great American Illustrator. While many may be familiar with him, seeing his original paintings is a real delight! Many will stir your emotions as they touch the core of our very lives. All 383 covers of The Saturday Evening Post are on display...but... More

This museum is good for the whole family - my kids love the generation fit and dynamic earth exhibits.

We are members and send our older children to camp here,... More

It does not matter what what exhibit you came to see, you will find even more to love. As largest museum in New Jersey, the Newark Museum does the state and its city proud. At over 100 years old, the exhibits are in constant flux and Planetarium is just icing on a beautiful cake. The atrium, the garden, the floors... More
