The extraordinary NEWARK MUSEUM OF ART is NEW JERSEY’S largest museum and considered one of the most forward-looking cultural institutions in the country. Established in 1909 by John Cotton Dana at the Newark Public Library, it now houses collections of American Art, decorative Arts, contemporary art, and the arts of Asia, Africa, the Americas and the ancient world in eighty galleries.
