This is the Best Museum in New Jersey, Among the Best in America
Love Exploring recently did an article that is perfect for day trips not only here in New Jersey, but around the nation as well. Their article focused on the best museums in America. "From elegant buildings filled with rare artifacts and fine-art paintings to cultural centers dedicated to Black history or indigenous culture, the US is almost embarrassingly rich when it comes to museums. We’ve scoured the country to pick the best museum in every state, with a mix of globally revered institutions and some wonderfully weird niche places to visit too."
So let's talk about the pick for us here in New Jersey. It's perfect for a summer day trip because it happens to be in one of the most visited towns during summer in New Jersey, Cape May. As we know one of the biggest destinations during summer in the Garden State is the town of Cape May. Not only will you be able to visit this museum, but there is plenty of other things to do in New Jersey's southernmost town.
The top pick from Love Exploring for New Jersey as the "best museum" is the Harriet Tubman Museum in Cape May, New Jersey. "The Harriet Tubman Museum is dedicated to the Underground Railroad’s most famous “conductor”, who escaped slavery and helped others flee via a network of trails and safe houses. Tubman worked as a cook in Cape May in the 1850s and used her wages to help fund her abolition efforts, and this center tells the story of her time in the town and her broader legacy."
We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Harriet Tubman Museum! Please follow us on Facebook for updates and news related to the Museum.
