The Newark Museum is the perfect destination for those days when a pensive mood prevails. The museum’s garden is home to the 1784 Old Stone Schoolhouse, a one-room schoolhouse that dates back more than two centuries. Inside the museum, check out the permanent exhibit, Native Artists of North America, to view more than 100 works of pottery, paintings, textiles, and carved items from the 18th century through modern times. Meanwhile, Art of the Ancient Mediterranean, which opens in November, features everything from an ancient Egyptian mummy case to a display exploring more than 2,500 years of glassmaking. The museum also has a planetarium, perfect for stargazers of all ages. If you’re more in the mood for adults-only fun, take part in the museum’s Late Thursdays series of live music, dance performances, and food.
