Newark Museum, Newark Reviews - Write a Review

  • What a pleasant surprise! Newark is probably the last place I expected to find such a wonderful art museum - and no one seems to know about it. We only found out when a neighbor talked us into going. Interesting, well displayed. A nice mix of history and art, and a great building. We will be back again after their expansion!

  • Our Upward Bound students received a guided tour. We discussed the composition and elements in a painting that contributed to it's mood and meaning. The tour's art theme was lighting. The tour ended in a quick sketch activity that encouraged our students to draw and learn about highlights regardless of their artistic ability. There was a spacious area for our group to eat lunch. The planetarium was fantastic. Our show was about Egyptian constellations and telling time with the Stars. Make sure you seat opposite of the entrance door on the back row or you might have to bend your neck uncomfortably to view the show. I think the museum is amazing on what it has to provide. I am hoping to return on my own time to explore more.

  • Newark Museum is unfortunately one of the best kept secrets in NJ. I never knew they existed until I went there for business. From their Asia exhibits to their Ballentine House Sterling Silver exhibit to the American Arts collection, there was something of interest throughout. I recommend going to their Hot Chili and Cold Brew event and getting acquainted with this hidden gem in Newark NJ.

  • Great place to visit in Newark. There are always new exhibits and programs. I love to see the artwork. Great museum!

  • The Newark Museum has a great summer day camp for school-aged children. Each session runs weekly with the option to sign up for multiple weeks. My two little ones attended a couple years ago and they had a great time. They still have some of the artifacts that they created. The only draw back for working parents is there is no before or after care. I also recently attended the 43rd Annual Newark Film Festival in the museum garden with my kids. For this event, Queen of Katwe was the featured movie and the Newark Chess Club was the partnering organization. The atmosphere was relaxing and the event was well organized. Overall, my two kids enjoyed the free popcorn and playing chess against other children and adults.
