  • My 6 year old son is very interested in space, so we wanted to visit a planetarium. We were excited to see that the NJ State Museum had a planetarium. Our family visited on a Sunday afternoon...

  • Incredible and wonderful experience of exhibitions. The New Jersey State Musrum is filled with a variety of local historical treasures, including toys, furniture, prints, paintings (including Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper John's and Andy Warhol!), ceramics, dinosaur artifacts, sculptures and much more in an awesome setting. Staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable of their surroundings. Even loaded up on locally created glass and ceramic items in the gift shop. Great time. Thank you!
  • Calm setting, mask was optional, front guard was pleasant. 1 guard followed me and my 2 son's around as he looked at his phone but we ignored him. The museum was delightful. A staff member explained to one of my sons about turtel bones. There is an upstairs area for young children with animals that looked realistic. There was a group of children there doing activities in a private room. My sons enjoyed it and they want to go back to see the other levels.we went to the main entrance and second floor There are a bottom level and 3rd floor.
