My husband and I visited the museum and enjoyed it. We arrived late in the day so we're there about an hour but enjoyed the time we were there and plan to go back. It is free and the museum has lots of information and history. We loved the art collection. It was clean and each floor has a security guard on the floor. It's a really nice place and everyone we spoke with there was helpful. I would recommend it.

Small museum with interesting historical items. The art exhibits were underwhelming. That space is better used for historical items. The staff were not friendly. Gift shop staff were obsessed with occupancy and made customers feel rushed and uncomfortable. The front desk security were nasty. Forcing adults to wear backpacks in reverse (in front of you) is ridiculous and condescending.

Interesting collection of New Jersey related historical items. Not too big, not too small - just the right size to keep children occupied without becoming bored. Some of the fine art is not relative to New Jersey but still interesting to the collection.

This place is one of the best uses of my tax dollar as a NJ resident. It has an impressive line up of exhibits for kids and adults alike. I've taken my daughters here multiple times and no trip is complete without a stop at the Discovery Den. They have a blast and it's hard to pry them away when it's time to leave!

This place is an undiscovered treasure in the town! Definitely recommend it. I loved the old stuff section, and the animal section. It's funny I asked my Instagram followers if the Dinasours are playing or fighting, and 76% said playing! 😃 Definitely visit the section down stairs where you guess what are those old items! Haha!
