Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, the Monmouth Museum is a 15,000 square foot museum with two children's wings and two galleries with rotating exhibits. The grounds also feature a garden and outdoor spaces to enjoy.

OUR MISSION

The Monmouth Museum, a Museum of Ideas, presents changing art, history and science exhibitions to educate and entertain while providing a destination for creative expression and life-long learning to the diverse community it serves.

OUR HISTORY

The Monmouth Museum is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in 1963 as the result of a needs assessment conducted by the Junior League of Monmouth County. Until 1973, exhibitions were housed in storefronts and other available temporary spaces. A permanent home for the Museum was built in 1974 on the Brookdale Community College campus, on a two acre site leased from the College. 

 

The Monmouth Museum serves as a center for education and culture and is one of the largest private Museums in New Jersey.  We serve as a cultural center of the arts, history, and science to all ages and abilities.
