“Not Much of a Museum Experience”

Noyes Museum of Art
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This museum was billed as a quirky and interesting place to go. After we finished at the wildlife preserve, we headed over to the Noyes Museum. We used an Entertainment Book coupon buy one/get one free ticket, but even at $5.00 I think we overpaid.

The galleries are all very small. One was "in transition" meaning that it was empty. The central area was set up for a wedding reception that evening. I didn't think too much of the plastic chairs.

There were some quirky art works, but after all the hype about what a hidden gem this place was, we were underwhelmed, especially by the sculpture "garden." You couldn't go out into the garden--you could only look at the pieces through slits in the side of the museum building!

Cute little place that had an awesome exhibit at the time. A hidden gem in South Jersey. Can spend an afternoon- maybe 3 hours there. wooded surroundings with picnic tables and nature area so you can pack a lunch.

This very pleasant museum operated by Stockton College is north of Atlantic City, just east of Route 9, near the Forsythe Natural Area. It had about 3 or 4 exhibit rooms, showing art of mainly local artists. There are nice sitting areas both inside and out overlooking a small lake in the rear. They have a small gift shop. The museum is open daily, but you should check the times in advance. Admission is $5, 4 for seniors, but when we mentioned AAA, the rate was only $2 per person. A pleasant visit if you are in this area.

Slightly off the beaten track but deserves a visit. Easy parking. Very welcoming and helpful receptionist. Several spacious galleries with high quality exhibitions the day we were there - "Enduring Brilliance" and the stunning Stan Sperlak landscapes in particular.

Nice outdoor area overlooking the lake.

Small but varied and good value gift store area.

The somewhat inaccessible and disappointing sculpture garden is the reason for the dropped star.
