Review of the Newark Museum

The Newark Museum is a must-do day trip. The museum is reminiscent of The American Museum of Natural History (Without the Dinosaur Bones) but with a decisively interactive bent. Many of the exhibits are hands on and there are daily crafts (we did a clay sculpting activity which we got to take home)
There is a mini zoo with Fish, a Mongoose, Lizards, an owl, 2 playful marmosets, and a bunch of creepy crawlies. We spent a good amount of our time at the Dynamic Earth Exhibits which has a Cave with lots of stuff to explore. There are some stuffed animal exhibits and a live animal demonstration with a turtle, millipede, and tarantula.

The Museum Cafe was a big open space with Hot Food Sandwiches and Snacks at a somewhat reasonable price. (Sanwhich was $5 Hot Lunch was between $6-7 depending on your selection)
Admission was $9 for adults and $6 for Kids under 12 The Planetarium which we did not get to visit (recommended age is 4 and above most programs have an older suggested age) is an additional $3
Parking which is right next to the museum was $5. The museum is so close and easy to get to a gem in New Jersey. We will be back for Dinosaur Day on May 4th.
