For art lovers, the museum is like a haven where they get to see marvellous artworks done by famous artists like Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, Edward Hopper, Tony Smith, Frederick Church and so on.

  • Haven't been to the Museum since I was a kid. Well kept and educational. Peter Wright, Manager of Public Programs at the Museum was a wonderful host. Will visit again.

  • A real cultural hub. The exhibits don't disappoint. The staff is helpful and courteous. You WILL learn something new or see something of note to share with friends, and acquaintances. Check it out. I even took this picture for myemergency engagement pics here, long story, but they were so accommodating because I have a membership.

  • I got 5k steps walking around the place. Neat art and not as crowded as bigger museums, so a much more personal feel. Oddly enough, I remember my shoes sounded nice while walking the place. The current Christmas themed market in the middle have reasonable prices and neat, unique items for sale.

  • Someone to help you at almost every corner. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very clean and new things to do and see often. Newark residents get in for free and that's such a nice thing.

  • Centrally located.. staff is helpful.. in addition the museum has great events for the general public.
