  • I had a wonderful experience in Newark museum. There are great things to see in Newark and also provide tours. Love this place
  • We attended the museum a week ago only to attend the planetarium - which we found about through google. On the planetariums website, it listed admission and timing of the shows. It DID NOT state that you had to purchase a museum admission to attend the planetarium. Therefore the museum, which is free to Newark residents - but we reside in Bergen County, and planetarium visit cost me $45.00 for a 2 hour visit (not including parking). The museum was fine for adults, not so much for children, but definitely not worth the trip to Newark, nor the cost. When I contacted the museum requesting a refund, I was denied my request - even though one of the employees confirmed the planetariums website was not clear on their admission policy. I am by no means insulting their art, as I am not in a position to do so, rather the customer service, the employees and the cost of admission are sub-par. A visit to any of the NYC museums is recommended, if you are not from Newark.
  • Currently there's a Native American exhibit installed. I was lucky enough to be at the opening and got a chance to listen to the music and watch some dancing. The rest of the exhibits are well worth the trip as well. I can't wait to go back for the planetarium.
  • This is a place my father and grand parents used to visit so taking my family to see it was a great experience. The museum is larger than it appears and has quite and extensive Tibetan collection. The attached Ballentine house has been restored further and the rooms have been decorated in Victorian fashion. While visiting don't forget to see the fire museum and old school house located in the park behind it.
  • Amazing!!! Great exhibits. Wonderful place to hold Film Festival
