If you live in the area this is a cool museum and planetarium to visit. they have awesome shows at the planetarium for adults and children. The museum is another nice place to see. They now have a dinosaur room with the Haddonfield dinosaur located in it. It's a must see.

Shows get sold out because of all the camps there during the week. Luckily, we went on "standby" and were able to see the show!

The museum provides a look not only into the history of manufacturing in New Jersey, but the history of New Jersey's first settlers and their interactions with the natives who first tamed this land. The planetarium is just the icing on the cake.

This place is great for kids and adults will love it too! I was really impressed with the collection, especially for a museum that's on the smaller side. I highly recommend it!

From Our Editors

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.
