Museums in New Jersey

New Jersey is home to many activities, but its museums are a must stop along your visit. With different themes, ranging from aviation to arts, there is a museum that will fit your every need. Take a look at the top museums that you need to visit while in New Jersey. 

Battleship New Jersey: If the typical museum is not for you, perhaps try the interactive Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial. The USS New Jersey (BB-62) was an iowa-class battleship, and was also known as “Big J” and “Black Dragon”. Upon entering the museum, located right by the beach, one will find themselves walking up and down ladders, caught in tight spaces, and maneuvering through passageways much like the crew of the USS New Jersey did. 

Doo Wop Experience Museum: Are you a fan of cool things? There’s a museum for that! Doo Wop Experience Museum has tons of nick-nacks that will tickle your fancy. The museum highlights fun memories and fascinating history from the 1950s and 1960s, architecture, design and music. If that doesn’t get you interested, head over just to take a look at their Neon Sign Garden! 

Dreyfuss Planetarium: One of the state’s largest museums, the Dreyfuss Planetarium is a place of knowledge and fun. If you’re interested in soaring through the solar system to learn about constellations and galaxies far, far away, the tickets will be within any budget and the experience will be worthwhile. 

Imagine That!!!: Traveling with children? Let them embrace their imagination at Imagine That!!! Created for small children with a big appetite for play, this museum, located in Livingston, NJ, houses an aquarium and tree-trunk backdrops that allow your children to explore the inner recesses of their minds.
