Planning a special event has as much to do with attending to the perfection of details as it does with presenting a passion for entertaining. You will find that both pursuits are well served at The Newark Museum, where a professional staff will help you create a memorable and exciting event set against a backdrop of timeless art and culture.
The Museum offers a variety of spaces for entertaining, including the elegant Engelhard Court, the richly decorated Ballantine House, the beautiful Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden, and the Billy Johnson Auditorium.
Whether it is a private wedding or other celebration, corporate entertaining or a conference, the Newark Museum will make your event one to remember.
For information about planning your event, contact our Special Events Department at 973-596-6068.
For ceremonies or company celebrations, consider the Engelhard Court. This spacious environment of classical design, punctuated by marble floors, seventeen-foot ficus trees and natural light, is an excellent choice for dinner and dancing. The Court also offers access to the Museum's galleries, which can be toured by your guests before and during your event.
For small parties, meetings, or conferences, we highly recommend the spaces in the landmark Ballantine House. The oak-paneled Trustees Room and the charming Helen S. Meyner Room, with their grand yet "clubby" feeling, are perfect for discussing business or dining in small groups. The Yellow Room is also recommended as a "break-out" facility for small seminars and workshops.
Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden
The Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden is a beautiful courtyard sculpture garden, well suited for outdoor affairs from small cocktail receptions to tented events.
Billy Johnson Auditorium
The Billy Johnson Auditorium, which seats 272 people and has state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities, is perfect for off-site employee and sales meetings.
