|100 Years: Always New
February 16, 2009 – January 24, 2010
Since its founding in 1909, the Newark Museum has had one mission: to welcome people onto its campus and then to dazzle and delight them by means of innovative and entertaining exhibitions of art and science. Here, in a photograph taken in the fall of 1940, a group of high school students waits in front of the Museum’s 1926 Bamberger building to see an exhibition.
