The Montclair Art Museum (MAM) is located in Montclair, New Jersey, United States, a few miles west of New York City. Since it opened in 1914 as the first museum in New Jersey that granted access to the public and the first dedicated solely to art, it has been privately funded. Its collection of more than 12,000 items and its exhibit programs are dedicated to American art and Native American art forms, as well as contemporary art in both those disciplines.

The museum sponsors a wide variety of programs in partnership with local organizations and maintains an extensive educational program for all age groups. For decades, MAM's Yard School of Art has provided opportunities for formal instruction to students at both amateur and professional levels.

  • Quite a nice art museum. I particularly enjoyed the display about an artist who painted the images in storybooks. Really quite powerful.
  • I really enjoyed this art museum a lot. They had a bunch of different displays and paintings that I was quite interested in. It wasn’t too crowded either, very calm museum. I got to take my time and see everything they have to offer. Great time overall
  • Went to the First Free Thrusday Holiday Market
  • This is a very well-curated museum, with lots of activities for children, and revolving exhibitions- as well as a vast permanent collection, centering on the artistic history of the community.
  • A great stop when in beautiful Montclair.
