I have taken my students on several class trips. Each time the exhibits have been intriguing and informative. My students love it.

The museum is definitely a hidden treasure of Newark.It takes several hours to visit,but it is really worth it.It has a vast collection of African American art and pieces from Cuba,Caribbean as well as some African artists doing seasonal exhibitions.It is not as busy as museums of NYC,but definitely has as much on offer and worth seeing

I have visited the museum many times as their exhibits change often and they offer a variety of programs year round and sponsor summer workshops for the children. If you are a first time visitor, a must is a tour of the attached historic Ballantine Mansion. The museum can set up for private functions as well and having attended a few, the service was impeccable.

this museum is the best kept secret in Newark. On my first visit I thought it would only take about a half hour. I was there several hours. it has three floors of exhibits. there is so much to see. every time you go, you can see something different.

The Newark Museum may not be in NYC, but it offers excellent displays, the planetarium, Ballentine House, workshops, etc. When my children were younger, they attended the summer workshops there and they were excellent. They also have the workshops in Saturdays in the fall. If you have never been to the Newark Museum or know firsthand of what they offer, you are missing out on a great venue that is affordable!
