The Main Gallery is designed with the goal to increase interest in the arts and learning. We present thought-provoking rotating exhibitions in the areas of arts, culture, science, and history, and nationally renowned talent along with the work of NJ artists. The exhibitions are curated by our Exhibitions Committee and through memberships with guest curators and national organizations.

Upcoming Exhibition in Main Gallery

by artist Kevan Lunney

Opening Reception:
Sunday, November 24, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Pets are a part of the famiy and should be cherished, especially at Holiday time! The bond between a pet and owner/parent is something unique. Pet portraits attempt to capture that cherished bond. This year’s Monmouth Museum Holiday Exhibition Petopia! in the Main Gallery will be filled with pet paw-traits of man’s best fur-ends as well as en-deering depictions of creatures big and small covered in fur, feathers and scales to celebrate the loving bond we have with our pets as well as the universal affection for the nautral beauty and majestic power of all animals.

The Main Gallery also features our popular Winter Wonderland Model Train Display and Christmas Tree decorated by the Friends of the Monmouth Museum.

Ask how you can sponsor a train!

Happy Howlidays from the Monmouth Museum!
