The Newark Museum of Art, Newark Overview

Founded in 1909, The Newark Museum of Art celebrates the coming together of art from different diversities in New Jersey. This museum is popular for student programmes and training sessions for art lovers. Expanding its horizons beyond art, this museum ventures into the bounty of natural resources. Its scientific exhibits like Victoria Hall of science, Alice and Leonard Dreyfuss Planetarium are simply worth seeing.
