The Gateway Region

Historic New Jersey Gateway

Mastodon Skeleton Inside the Rutgers Geology Museum

Museums For Kids & Adults


New Jersey’s northeast Gateway Region is not only home of the state’s largest metro, but it’s also home to some of Jersey’s premier museums and discovery centers.

Located in the city of Newark, the aptly named Newark Museum enchants visitors with a robust amount of historical, cultural, and overall dazzling displays.

Specific collections and exhibits include Dynamic Earth: Science Tour, African American Artists, and the Alice and Leonard Dreyfuss Planetarium.

Clearly, the Newark Museum offers so much more than your average run-of-the-mill museum.

Likewise, the New Jersey Children’s Museum near Fort Lee houses their own unique and colorful collection of exhibits designed for children yet can almost certainly be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

The exhibits, including a real fire truck, medieval castle, helicopter, and so much more, all strive to make learning fun using a hands-on approach kids love.

Located between South Plainfield and East Brunswick, the Rutgers Geology Museum is a free museum set on the campus of Rutgers University. This museum carries an abundance of collections – some have been on display since as early as 1863 – showcasing minerals, fossils, and geological specimens sure to wow the crowd.

The kids won’t want to miss the actual mastodon skeleton and 2,400-year-old mummy remains on display. Actually, you might want to see those ones as well.
