History

The Monmouth Museum is an independent, non-profit organization established in 1963 as the result of a needs assessment conducted by the Junior League of Monmouth County. Until 1973 exhibitions were housed in storefronts and other available temporary spaces. A permanent home for the Museum was built in 1974, entirely from private funds, on the Brookdale Community College campus, on a two acre site leased from the College. The Museum is one of the largest private museums in New Jersey, with an annual attendance exceeding 50,000.

Who We Serve

The Monmouth Museum serves as a center for education and culture and is one of the largest private Museums in New Jersey.  We serve as a cultural center of the arts, history, and science to all ages and abilities.
