Becker Children’s Wing & Green Arts Studio

The Becker Children’s Wing and the Green Arts Studio will be closed through the end of February while we address some issues that pertain to accessibility and safety. We are using this opportunity to make this space better for all! We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. We value our members and want to ensure that we provide the best family museum experience possible. If you would like to discuss your membership options, please reach out to us at


The six-and-under audience will have a magical undersea learning experience playing in our popular WonderWing.

Children can explore a pirate ship, perform in a Tiki theater, climb a treehouse, experience a kelp forest, slide down a whale slide, and listen to a moving waterfall.

Birthday parties are often booked in advance so be sure to call first to make sure the WonderWing is open.

The Meyer Art & Nature Area

The Meyer Art & Nature Area is a multifaceted outdoor art area that serves as a classroom for the appreciation of art and nature.  This area has encouraged our educational programs to spill out into a “nature learning center” where the sky is literally the limit! The Meyer Art & Nature Area features an Art Area, Gathering Area, Butterfly Garden, Wildlife Area, Bird Watching Area, Picnic Area, Photo-Op and the famous “Stella”, a large magenta dinosaur created by the late Monmouth County sculptor Jim Gary, made from a collection of auto parts!  This space is open to both families visiting for the day, and can be customized as part of  an educational tour that can be customized for your visiting groups from Spring through Fall!
