The Newark Museum is the largest museum in New Jersey. Featuring 80 galleries of world-class collections on the arts and natural sciences, it holds exhibits of American, African, Asian, and classical art complementing its mini zoo, sculpture garden, planetarium, and Victorian Ballantine House. Visitors also get the chance to witness the Victorian-period lifestyle as decorative objects from the 1650?s are displayed.

Founded in 1909, the Newark Museum has already undergone an extensive 4-year renovation and expansion program amounting to $23 million. World-famous Michael Graves made the design, which garnered the American Institute of Architects? Honor Award.

Now, especially since the museum just celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2009, visitors can now explore its evolution through the 2 galleries above the Newark Free Public Library within the multi-building campus.
