“Jazz in the Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

I have been a member of this very under-rated museum and it is worth the trip into Newark. The parking is expensive $8.00 and I think this is unfair to members. I went in for the annual 'Jazz in the Park' program which should not be missed each summer. The program is getting shorter each year due to budget cuts but try to see the Ballentine House and the Planetarium while you are there. It really is a lot of fun..

During the summer months every Thursday at 12 noon, the Newark Museum hosts Summer Jazz in the Garden. A wonderful event to relax to.

“History right around the corner in Newark, NJ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

I am embarrassed it took me so long to visit Newark's own Historical Museum. I was fortunate to have seen the Vince Lombardi Trophy this year. The original trophy that was produced by Tiffany & Co. in Newark, New Jersey. THAT'S RIGHT...NEWARK, NJ! Aside from this they were exhibiting MING to Modern: Chinese Art. If you are travelling in Newark, stop by 'Newark Museum', you'll never know what great things they will be exhibiting.

“A downtown Newark gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

The Newark museum is a great place to take the kids, you don't have to go into NYC to go to a good museum. They have frequently changing special exhibits.

“A jewel in Newark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I suppose staff at the Newark Museum must be tired of hearing people breathlessly tell them "I never realized a museum like this existed in Newark." Poor, downtrodden, easy-to-ignore Newark. But this museum is a gem, with an important Tibetan collection. We were there during a Norman Rockwell exhibition, which was a delight. Knowledgeable and friendly docents - Vera showed us around. The ultimate compliment: even if you're staying in New York it's worth a trip.
