The Natural Science CollectionThe Natural Science Collection is a significant component of The Newark Museum's educational activities, including holdings in zoology, botany, and geology.
The founding collection, bequeathed to the Museum by Dr. William Disbrow in 1922, contained more than 74,000 examples of rocks, minerals, and pressed plants. The Museum's holdings have been augmented over the years, and today specimens from all over the world comprise the ornithology, entomology and shell collections; a reference herbarium is the repository of several rare New Jersey plants, among many others; and over 20,000 rocks, minerals and fossils.
