  • I enjoyed my trip to the Museum. Too be very honest ... I am not a museum person . But this visit turned my interest in visiting more museums.  more »
  • I was staying at a friend's apartment in downtown Newark for a few days and wanted to get out and walk around downtown. This museum is a great treasure to the city. It has a pretty good collection wit...  more »
  • I visited here back in 2016, and I easily spend around four hours, and I still didn't see everything. (I plan to make a return visit soon.) Sadly this museum isn't as well known as it should be becaus...  more »

  • The Newark Museum has a great summer day camp for school-aged children. Each session runs weekly with the option to sign up for multiple weeks. My two little ones attended a couple years ago and they had a great time. They still have some of the artifacts that they created. The only draw back for working parents is there is no before or after care. I also recently attended the 43rd Annual Newark Film Festival in the museum garden with my kids. For this event, Queen of Katwe was the featured movie and the Newark Chess Club was the partnering organization. The atmosphere was relaxing and the event was well organized. Overall, my two kids enjoyed the free popcorn and playing chess against other children and adults.
  • I went with my 16 yr. old girl. We really had a great time. It may seem to be small but it has a lot to see. The price is reasonable and fair. Ask for student and seniors discount. I will definitely going back.
  • Great museum, so much bigger than you'd think it is from the outside. If you're a student definitely stop in as it's free and is something fun to do on a day off or for a project!
  • Very educational museum although I was rather disappointed with how small the African exhibit was in contrast to others. I'm hoping they expand it some day soon. My family and I also purchased tickets to the planetarium and it was absolutely lovely. I definitely recommend visiting if you're in the area!
  • We love coming here with our family. The exhibits are varied and interesting. The planetarium is always fun and educational - at the end of the shows the curator takes the time to go through the current astronomical sky so that we can use the knowledge that same day (night). On Saturdays there's usually family friendly programming/tours that make the museum accessible and fun for kids. We love Newark Museum!
