The Newark Museum, New Jersey's largest museum, invites you to enjoy unforgettable experiences in the arts and natural sciences. Take an inspirational journey through 80 galleries of world-class collections including American, Asian, African and Classical.
Experience another era in the Victorian Ballantine House—a National Historic Landmark. Come face-to-face with live animals from around the world in the Mini Zoo or travel to the stars in our popular planetarium. Stroll through our beautiful sculpture garden, visit our museum shops and enjoy a delicious lunch or snack at our café.
The Newark Museum operates, as it has since its founding, in the public trust as a museum of service, and a leader in connecting objects and ideas to the needs and wishes of its constituencies. We believe that our art and science collections have the power to educate, inspire and transform individuals of all ages, and the local, regional, national and international communities that we serve. In the words of founding Director John Cotton Dana, "A good museum attracts, entertains, arouses curiosity, leads to questioning—and thus promotes learning."
