the MONMOUTH MUSEUM
The Monmouth Museum in Lincroft offers changing art, history and science
exhibitions in four separate galleries and an outdoor picnic and garden, Meyer
Art & Nature Area, providing a destination for creative expression and lifelong
learning. Imaginative and informative exhibitions in the Main and Nilson
Galleries present a wide variety of art in all media.
The WonderWing and Becker Children’s Wing feature hands-on, interactive
exhibitions that provide fun learning experiences for children and their families.
The current exhibition in the Becker Children’s Wing, Ancients to Astronauts:
How We Communicate, explores the subject of communication through five
different interactive areas. Experience weather and learn how weather reports
are broadcast, travel to ancient Egypt in a time machine to visit a mummy’s
tomb, blast off into space in a Friendship 7 space capsule, make a craft from
recycled materials in the popular Green Arts Studio, watch a movie or read
and take a free book in the Fleischner Media Center and visit a new Innovation
Laboratory that has recently been installed providing new S.T.E.A.M. learning
for our MMKIDS. Children ages 6 years and under will have a magical
undersea learning experience in the WonderWing, a permanent exhibition
about the sea and the creatures that make it their home. Children have plenty
of opportunities for fun—exploring a pirate ship, climbing inside a lighthouse,
playing in a kelp forest, performing in a Tiki Theatre and sliding through the
mouth of a whale! An ongoing schedule of films, planetarium shows and story
times provides special activities for our young visitors.
Educational programs at the Museum include guided tours, lectures,
workshops, bus trips and themed craft activities and demonstrations.
