  • What is the cost to 150 Newark's senior residents (those 55 and up) to visit the Museum? Can a guided tour via a docent be arranged?

    • The senior citizen criteria of Newark Museum is for those above 65. But, as you are visiting in a large group, you may get some kind of discount. You can call the museum on 973.596.6690 and they will help you further.
