I Love school trips to the museum. I don't remember going when I was a kid so this gives me a chance to experience historic artifacts too.

There are lots of very interesting artifacts and History at the Museum that even I, as a former resident of Newark and New Jersey, was not aware of.....or remember, at very least. Great for the kids and adults alike.
