The Jersey City Museum
The Jersey City Museum is a vibrant community asset committed to serving its diverse audiences and celebrating the unique cultural history of the region. The Museum collects, exhibits, preserves, and interprets its collections of 19th- and 20th-century paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and material culture from the region.
In order to stimulate community participation in the visual arts, and to reflect the cultural diversity of New Jersey, the Jersey City Museum gives special attention to the exhibition of contemporary art, and recognizes the many visual artists who make their home in New Jersey and the neighboring metropolitan area.
The Jersey City Museum strives through its exhibitions, education programs, research projects, publications, and other programs, to strengthen and encourage the participation of the general public. The Museum provides educational programs to a broad cross-section of the community that, at once, encourages creativity, teaches visual literacy, and promotes interest in art and local history; these are central to the Museum's activities.
Admission to the museum is free of charge. Donations accepted.
