Insectropolis transports humans to a bug-themed city populated with thousands of creepers and crawlers. Insect enthusiasts enjoy unlimited admission to more than a dozen educational exhibits, which include a crash course in bug basics and interactive games that help museum-goers to develop a newfound appreciation for purported pests. Observe arachnid sewing circles or watch ants forage for food and build tunnels that spell out the answers to tomorrow's crossword puzzle. Bug-touching presentations (12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Monday–Friday, and throughout the day on Saturdays) are one of the bugseum’s most popular activities and encourage guests to overcome unfounded fears by touching a live millipede, stroking a scorpion, or caressing a cockroach while expanding insectile awareness. Periodically, Insectropolis also holds a variety of fundraisers and themed events, such as bug hunts and cockroach races (some events may require guests to pay an additional fee to gain entry).

The New Jersey State Museum & Planetarium grants residents and visitors a lifelong education in science, history, and the arts through its collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and scholarship. Founded in 1895 and accredited by the American Association of Museums, the complex holds more than 2.6 million artifacts, specimens, and works of art in its collections. These pieces pique viewer curiosity in themed exhibits, exploring art periods, relationships between Native Americans and European settlers, natural history, and other topics.

The Archaeology & Ethnography Collection highlights textiles, beads, and hide works from Delaware Indians and other North American–natives. The Fine Art Collection assembles works by American modernists and abstract artists. Massive Trenton-made furnishings, Civil War–flags, and maritime artifacts are among the fascinating objects in the Cultural History exhibits, and the Natural History Collection houses prehistoric fossils—many from New Jersey—and insect, animal, and geological specimens. The museum is also home to the 150-seat Planetarium, which dazzles eyes with images of the solar system, faraway stars, and astronaut training during shows. Audiences witness traditional sky projections and laser-created programs comprised of 6,000 stars on the ceiling of the full 360-degree dome.

When John A. Roebling immigrated to America from his native Prussia in the 1830s, he had no idea that he would forever change the face of his adopted country's architecture and economy. After developing a special type of twisted-wire rope for hauling canal boats, the Roebling business boomed with the dawn of the suspension bridge, its cables gracing such monuments as the Brooklyn Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. During the company's heyday under the management of John Roebling's children and grandchildren, it served as a vital centerpiece of the Trenton region's industry, employing more than 8,000 workers at four factories at its peak.

Though the works shuttered in 1974, an extensive cleanup and restoration of the Roebling Mill site gives visitors a glimpse into the past, showing what life was like for thousands of men and women who worked in the steel mills and labored on the factory grounds. Patrons marvel not only at meticulously preserved industrial artifacts such as photographs, wire ropes, and machine parts, but also remnants of everyday life in the nearby company town. Walking and trolley tours take families and tourists through picturesque views of the early 20th century, while trips to the archives allow researchers to comb through a wealth of primary sources.
