Including the Ballantine House which was amazing. Part of the house is connected to the museum which is totally cool. The house is amazing, and part of it has a suite of eight Victorian period rooms, and each room depicts how people decorated their homes in America, from the 1650's to the present day. As I was walking around I felt as if I was in a couple of scenes from Downton Abbey.
^^^ This piano made her day! Too bad she couldn't play it! ^^^
^^^ Don't you just love Noah's expression! ^^^
^^^ The art collection was distinguishing, and historical. There was African, Chinese, Korean, Indian, and South Asian art. This museum truly was amazing. ^^^
^^^ This sculpture is made entirely of shoes! ^^^
^^^ One of my favorites was the Tibetan exhibit. Apparently this museum holds the largest collection of Tibetan art outside of Asia. ^^^Going to Newark, and visiting the museum was a great experience. Newark is not all industrial. There are actually quite a few places that were appealing to us, and this museum was one of them. The kids had a blast, and seeing them happy knowing that they got an educational lesson out of it puts a smile on all our faces!
A great beginning to our spring break!
