1. Space Farms Museum and Zoo, Sussex
This eclectic museum and zoo is truly unique. You can find something here to suit almost any interest. Visitors can enjoy classic cars, a miniature circus, vintage dolls, unique clocks, Native American artifacts, and the second largest privately owned collection of antique firearms in the United States. The zoo includes the largest private collection of North American wildlife in the world - over 500 animals. The zoo also participates in many programs which help to benefit endangered species.
2. Roebling Museum, Roebling
This unique museum is highly specialized, and a favorite amongst engineers. According to its website, "The mission of the Roebling Museum is to document, preserve and exhibit the history of the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company, the Roebling family and the village of Roebling. Its focus is not only on the industrial and technological achievements of the company but on the unique social history of its workforce and the town it created."
3. Adventure Aquarium, Camden
This is already a pretty popular attraction, but some still stay away because of its location. I know Camden isn't the safest city, but the aquarium isn't dangerous...just dangerously awesome. Two words: shark tunnel. If you have some extra cash, you can even get up close with the animals!
4. Newark Museum, Newark
Another incredible attraction in a less desirable city, Newark DOES have nice areas. This museum is right near all the universities and offers an extensive art collection, the historic Victorian Ballantine house, and a planetarium. It is the largest museum in New Jersey.
