About the Archives
The purpose of the Archives is to collect, preserve, and organize The Newark Museum’s records of historical value. Materials document exhibitions of art, science, and culture; public and educational programs; as well as administrative activities. The earliest records date from 1909 and continue through the present, consisting of over 2,500 linear feet of paper records, 26,000 documentary photographs, over 200 published articles written by staff members, and hundreds of video and audio recordings. Located within The Newark Museum’s Library, the Archives provides reference services to hundreds of researchers each year.
