This is a solid museum with that houses a multitude of changing, interesting exhibits. I am an architecture fanatic so I bring like-minded friends here often to check out the Ballantine House, which is a preserved ten-room Victorian mansion you can tour. The exhibit focuses on what makes a “house” a “home” and it’s very neat. For kids there are a lot of hands-on exhibits and educational tours. Admission is free for Newark residents (bring your Jersey id) and $7 for everyone else.
