New Jersey on Display:
World’s Fairs and the Garden State
New Jersey on Display is an exciting new exhibition chronicling New Jersey’s involvement in seven world’s fairs held between 1876 and 1964. At these spectacular, international events, New Jersey promoted itself to the world by juxtaposing its revolutionary past with a modern, innovative present and promise for the future.
This exhibition was developed as part of the NJ350 celebration and is supported by a grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission.
