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

Dear Friends,
We are enormously thankful to all who have helped the Trenton Museum Society and the Trenton City Museum with financial support, steadfast encouragement, and continued engagement since Covid shut our doors for six months in 2020. This extraordinatory support includes individual donors and institutions such as the New Jersey Arts and Culture Recovery Fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation (PACF), the Bunbury Fund of PACF, and NJM Insurance Group. Thanks to all of you, we reopened in September 2020. Since then we have shown On the Forefront: Trenton’s Jr. 1, 1916, The Conversation Continues, Women Artists, Trenton Style, and Ellarslie Open, on view through October 3. All of our shows can also be viewed online as virtual exhibitions.


  • Hours for the museum and Molly’s Museum Shop are Fridays and Saturdays from 12 noon to 4 pm and Sundays from 1 to 4 pm
  • We follow standard measures such as physical distancing and 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 recommend that you sign up ahead of time with SignUp Genius to guarantee your spot(s). Sign-up links are found throughout our website. We look forward to seeing you!


  • We offer Zoom history talks, live streamed performances, and virtual tours, and we are excited about the increased accessibility to all of our programming that these technologies make possible
  • We are embracing the great outdoors for the mix-and-mingle aspects of receptions so as to enhance the simultaneous art viewing experience with more distanced entries
  • 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; stay tuned for our 2021 Holiday Boutique plans

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

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