New Jersey State Museum

The New Jersey State Museum opens its doors once again to the public. Visitors are invited to enjoy free, curator-led gallery tours, hands-on activities outdoors on the museum plaza, and story time on the lawn, as well as discounted planetarium shows.

Guests also receive a free 24-ounce water bottle, one per person, while supplies last. Entry to the museum is always free; there is a small charge for planetarium shows. 

Young visitors can participate in several self-directed outdoor activities (weather permitting), including sidewalk chalk art, creating a paper “quilt” square to be added to the displayed community quilt, and story time under the sycamore at 10:30am and 1:30pm. 

The museum opens for its regular hours, 9am-4:45pm, beginning July 24. The museum is closed Mondays and all state holidays.
