The Newark Museum, New Jersey's largest museum, features 80 galleries of world-class collections showcasing the arts and natural sciences. Exhibits of American, Asian, African, and classical art complement the museum’s mini zoo, planetarium, sculpture garden, and Victorian Ballantine House, a National Historic Landmark that lets visitors experience another era. Museum shops and a café complete the visit.


Mission Statement

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."
