Part of the Newark Museum since 1985, the Ballantine House is now a museum where people learn about life in the 1650s. With eight rooms designed to be "House and Home" galleries, you will be brought back in time and educated on the lifestyles of people in the 17th century and the ways those lifestyles changed over the years. This museum is not only unique, it is a historical attraction in the heart of Newark.
As part of the Newark Museum, The Ballantine House is open during the regular museum hours and all are welcome to take a private tour. Some of the restored Victorian-era rooms available for touring include the dining room, the master bedroom, Mrs. Ballantine's Boudoir and Alice Ballantine's Bedroom, as well as a few other rooms throughout the home.
Great place to learn about the American lifestyle!
