Welcoming visitors right inside our front door, “The Museum Goers” by found object and metal sculptor Eric Schultz

Dear Friends,
With enormous appreciation for all who have helped the Trenton Museum Society and the Trenton City Museum with financial support and steadfast encouragement and engagement since we closed in March, we have great news! Thanks to you, we reopened successfully September 26, with the wonderful exhibitions On the Forefront: Trenton’s Jr. 1, 1916, on view through April, The Conversation Continues, still on view as a virtual show, and Women Artists, Trenton Style, on view through June 6.


  • For now, hours for the museum and Molly’s Museum Shop are Fridays and Saturdays 12 noon to 4 pm and Sundays 1 to 4 pm.
  • We follow standard measures such as physical distancing and mandatory masking, including when you post photos from inside the museum, frequent sanitizing, plentiful hand sanitizer for our visitors, and a plexiglass barrier in Molly’s Museum Shop
  • We accommodate up to 25 persons in the museum at a given time, and ask you to sign up ahead of time with the SignUp Genius links to guarantee a spot.


  • We have offered Zoom history talks, live streaming performances, and virtual tours, and we are excited about the increased accessibility to all of our programming that these technologies make possible
  • Events such as a traditional opening reception are replaced currently with smeet-the-artists weekend spaced over a few days to ensure smaller, socially distanced gatherings
  • Some events may take the form of a hybrid, for example music performed in person to a limited audience and streamed
  • We made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Holiday Boutique for 2020
  • We have begun to offer online sales of selected items from Molly’s Museum Shop

Please reach out any time with your comments, suggestions, and questions.

We hope you and yours stay well,
Joan Perkes, President
Trenton Museum Society
