Lauded as the best local children's museum by (201) magazine's Best of Bergen 2010 and 2011 series, The New Jersey Children's Museum entertains and educates moppets with more than 40 interactive exhibits. Children can dabble in potential careers as doctors or nurses at the play hospital, dress up as firefighters atop an actual 1954 open-cab fire truck, or rehash playground happenings as news anchors at the television studio. At the grocery-store exhibit, children can load up their shopping carts with the happy knowledge that finally their play-money savings won't be suffering from exchange rates.
The New Jersey Children's Museum
The New Jersey Children's Museum immerses its visitors in more than 30 interactive exhibits that encourage hands-on exploration and learning, a philosophy that helped the facility secure a place within (201) Magazine's Best of Bergen 2011 series. Adventure intertwines with education within the dinosaur cave, where kids can make cave drawings or dig up fossils of prehistoric sports mascots. Heads turn as flashing lights and the warning cries of an approaching locomotive fill the air at the giant train set, and news stories break at the television studio. In addition to its many curiosity-inducing zones, the award-winning facility also hosts birthday parties with themes such as fire trucks, princesses, and dinosaurs.
