Not your ordinary museum.

Mission Statement
The Newark Museum operates, as it has since its founding, in the public trust as a museum of service, and a leader in connecting objects and ideas to the needs and wishes of its constituencies.  We believe that our art and science collections have the power to educate, inspire and transform individuals of all ages, and the local, regional, national and international communities that we serve.  In the words of founding Director John Cotton Dana, “A good museum attracts, entertains, arouses curiosity, leads to questioning—and thus promotes learning.”

    Do you have any information about the career of Edward Hunter Ross 1906-1989?
    The Newark Museum Association published in 1963 his work: “Indians of the Passaic Valley”
    On a 1957 passenger manifest regarding a voyage to London he was listed with the occupation of: “Museum Curator” but the name of the museum is not stated.
