Excellent customer support, quick responses, and the most affordable price possible. The technician arrived on time and was polite. strongly advised!
I just bought a house, so I'm living alone for the first time. Therefore, I probably lock myself out once a month, and locksmiths routinely rip me off. In what I thought was a prudent move, I left a hide-a-key at my front door, which was obviously stolen. I had to have my home re-keyed as a result of being locked out. The guy was prompt and effective in addition to re-keying my home quickly. He also fixed the lock issues I was having that other people had simply ignored.
Free weekend Tours at 1pm by friendly, fun experts! What Newark Museum of Art may lack in priceless masterpieces compared with other international city museums it more than makes up for with its beautiful curation, interior design and staffing. From ancient, through romantic, impressionism, modernism and post-modern and so many forms; sculpture, fabrics, even animated projections! All carefully organized into one cohesive and moving experience. Best experienced with the expert tour guides, Betty designed a special themed tour for us on Labor Day weekend that led us through pieces by local artists that celebrated the labor movement over the tumult of the last two centuries in the Newark area, from the Ashcan School via Joseph Stella to brilliant contemporary local artists like Bisa Butler and Willie Cole, pointing out themes that the excellent descriptions helpfully printed on the walls could not possibly fully convey. Enormous Elevators big enough for wheelchairs. Optional masking Sep 2022. Bags allowed.
I hadn't been there in years. I took my 3 yr old niece for the 1st time & she really enjoyed it. We both did. They have some exquisite displays of art & many other things. It's a great place for an outing for people of all ages. I'm going back real soon.
Fantastic collection in spacious and thoughtful galleries. Had a marvelous time walking around here on a Saturday afternoon. Staff was welcoming, friendly, and helpful. EDIT: visited again one year after this initial review. This is truly an incredible institution, with a world class collection, and marvelously curated galleries. Cannot say enough about this place. Bring your friends.
I haven't been to this museum in a long time. I forgot how beautiful and inspirational it is. The parking is on premise and I never had to leave the lot to enter the museum that captured my heart again. I was so glad I came, the show was fun, lively and me want to support the museum more.
Nice little museum in Newark. Some of the exhibits we're closed, but still a lot of good mix of art and history on display.
I hadn’t been here in awhile, but it looks even better than I remembered! The Billie Holiday exhibit is definitely worth checking out as well as the Buddhist temple. I’ll be back! I might even renew my membership.
We travelled from PA to Newark for a visit to the museum. TravelAdvisor says it is the biggest museum in NJ, though not likely accurate, It is worth your visit as a museum fan. The African collection, the Tibetan Buddhism collection, and the meditative section were a highlight. Some of the modern arts works are very beautiful too. It was fun talking to the staff at the museum. The museum is a lot bigger than from outside. We got the admissions through AAM membership and a guest pass. Do check out the website for free admit opportunities.
Went on a Friday afternoon..was basically empty. From reception and all the way through staff was helpful and pleasant. Exhibits def. captivated my attention. My two favorite were Bisa Butler And Native Artists of N America. I spent abt 2.5 hrs there. Gift shop was nice to browse, but as with most museum gift shops it was a bit pricey. Atleast for me. I'm recommending all my friends to visit.
My visit here was amazing. This place is a gem. I also visited the planetarium and the Ballantine Mansion. The staff were all very friendly and polite. This museum has an amazing collection; the American art was probably the highlight of my time here, but there is also a wonderful collection of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities. You must plan to stay here several hours at a minimum.
The Newark Museum was amazing! I took my nephews and mom with me. The kids had never been to a museum before! They loved it! It's such a great place to visit! Please go...and take the kids!
It was an interactive learning experience for the family. The enjoyed the exhibits and participating in the projects.
Fantastic museum with great people! I was waiting for an evening flight out of Newark and decided to spend the day at the museum. The kind folks at coat check held my suitcase and the front desk person recommended a classic diner for lunch. They had several special exhibits on and I found their call out of the history of American slavery in art to be very thoughtful.
I've been here many times before and enjoyed every exhibit, however, on this visit I was looking to keep a toddler busy on a rainy day and was not disappointed. There were educational toys, a painting session, a Lego etc room and the planetarium. A good time was had by all and an afternoon nap was in order for grandma and the toddler.
Went to see local quilter Bisa Butler's quilt, The Warmth of Other Sons, but arrived unexpectedly during her tv interview. Saw an amazing Adinkra art piece and bottle top wall hanging instead! Will return later for Butler's quilt.
I was born and raised and New Jersey -- with us being so close to NYC sometimes places like Newark Museum of Art gets overlooked. Truth is it's one of my favorite places to visit in Newark. You could spend all day here and still more to come back and experience. If you live in the area there's always an event that engages the community (and it's free for Newark residents). This was my first time visiting since the pandemic and with only 2hrs to make my rounds before closing I was completely moved by the newest exhibits. Even with some construction underway each space was enticing!
The exhibits were beautiful and outstanding representing many cultures and enjoyed seeing so many young people working at the Newark Museum of. Art preparing to continue the work.
This is a great museum. I especially liked the Seeing America exhibit. The Native Artists and Ancient Mediterranean exhibits were also interesting. I also enjoyed the Arts of Global Africa collection. Finally, the Ballantine house and the exhibits on display there, especially the "Sterling" silver exhibit were great, as well.
A very good museum well worth a visit. The Ballantine house is a nicely restored Victorian era home attached to the museum. A nice assortment of Asian, African, European and American art. There is a parking lot right next to the museum. A cafe is being installed. There is a planetarium also within the building. Great place to spend a day.
How did I not know how great this place is? It is huge and filled with all kinds of interesting exhibits from different cultures and time periods. There is even a restored house inside it. We probably only saw 2/3 of it. We will have to come back. The staff is friendly. They have a AAA discount. The museum shop is nice. Also there is a small sculpture garden and old schoolhouse in back.
Beautiful curation. We spent most of our time in the American Masters area on the second floor. Staff was great and the place is completely wheelchair accessible.
I came here for an art final. It was nice and quiet. You got to see a wide range of artwork from various artists. Some you haven't even heard of. It's small, but you get to so entranced by the art that it seems like you've been there for a while. If you love art, this is a great place to go. Especially if you're a Kean student and you need to go to an art museum for a project or final.
Beautiful building, great ilumination and cute expositions. A little bit overpriced for the whole experience, but very well maintained.
Exquisite collection. We particularly enjoyed the curated African objects, the marvelous special mountain art exhibit featuring Bierstadt et al, and the fascinating AND beautiful Ballantine House (the beer folks!). If you haven't been: GO.
The Newark Museum has a great summer day camp for school-aged children. Each session runs weekly with the option to sign up for multiple weeks. My two little ones attended a couple years ago and they had a great time. They still have some of the artifacts that they created. The only draw back for working parents is there is no before or after care. I also recently attended the 43rd Annual Newark Film Festival in the museum garden with my kids. For this event, Queen of Katwe was the featured movie and the Newark Chess Club was the partnering organization. The atmosphere was relaxing and the event was well organized. Overall, my two kids enjoyed the free popcorn and playing chess against other children and adults.
Our Upward Bound students received a guided tour. We discussed the composition and elements in a painting that contributed to it's mood and meaning. The tour's art theme was lighting. The tour ended in a quick sketch activity that encouraged our students to draw and learn about highlights regardless of their artistic ability. There was a spacious area for our group to eat lunch. The planetarium was fantastic. Our show was about Egyptian constellations and telling time with the Stars. Make sure you seat opposite of the entrance door on the back row or you might have to bend your neck uncomfortably to view the show. I think the museum is amazing on what it has to provide. I am hoping to return on my own time to explore more.
This is a place my father and grand parents used to visit so taking my family to see it was a great experience. The museum is larger than it appears and has quite and extensive Tibetan collection. The attached Ballentine house has been restored further and the rooms have been decorated in Victorian fashion. While visiting don't forget to see the fire museum and old school house located in the park behind it.
