Museums to Visit with Kids in NJ

Let’s face it: some museums are too boring for kids. They may be beautiful institutions of enlightenment, but they also might be too stuffy or dry to hold a child’s attention.

Instead, try these museums to visit with kids in NJ for educational and eye-opening experiences that the whole family can appreciate.

Family-Friendly Attractions in NJ are Fun and Educational

Newark Museum

Newark Museum features a perfect blend of history, art, and local culture. American and decorative arts are on display alongside artwork from Africa and Asia as well as ancient cultures. Family workshops aimed at children and their parents make collections accessible for younger generations.

Montclair Art Museum

See American and Native American art at Montclair Art Museum. This is a kid-friendly institution, with a Family Learning Lab where kids can do fun activities and create their own art. There’s also a Family Guide available for some exhibitions with activities to help children engage with the displays.

Liberty Science Center

Liberty Science Center is where science comes to life. This is one of the best museums in NJ for a slew of interactive exhibits and activities to try, including building with gigantic foam and wooden blocks, learning how wild animals catch their food, and watching a lightning show. Learn about balance and movement by scaling the Infinity Climber, and visit the Wonder Why exhibit to build, climb, create, and learn about the world around you.

If you and your family are looking for things to do this winter in NJ, try out any of these fun and family-friendly attractions in NJ. Get enlightened, learn a thing or two while you’re at it, and stay with us at The Wilshire Grand Hotel to experience it all.
