The Newark Museum at 49 Washington St, Newark, NJ is not as well known as other museums in the NY Metropolitan area, but worth a visit.

The collection starts in a colonial gallery and continues to the 21st century.
The Ballantine House was built in 1885 by the son of Peter Ballantine, founder of Ballantine Beer. It is fully furnished in the period and has some original furniture.
The Tibetan collection is the largest outside of Tibet. You will have to go there to find out how it ended up in Newark NJ.
There are tours of the collections, free with admission.
