Trenton is the capital of New Jersey arts and culture, and the epicenter of New Jersey government and politics. With affordable sports and entertainment venues, historic sites, and great restaurants, Trenton has something for everyone.
In the area immediately surrounding the golden dome of the New Jersey State House is the New Jersey State Museum, an exciting museum featuring four museums in one, with a planetarium, a fine art collection of more than 12,000 works, a natural history collection and an impressive assemblage of cultural history, archaeology and ethnography artifacts.
Trenton's World War II Memorial pays tribute to the greatest military victory for the United States. It was an effort in which every citizen contributed and had a stake in the outcome, both on the front lines and at home. The WWII Memorial unfolds around the overall theme of "Victory," with three core ideas, which are analogous to the WWII Generation: Service, Duty and Sacrifice. The central sculptural element, named "Lady Victory" symbolically encompasses the greatness of this effort and the grace and courage of the WWII generation.
