Today, the Noyes Museum’s exhibitions reflect the area’s cultural heritage, while also presenting significant artwork by regional and national artists working in a variety of media. The Noyes has expanded to include galleries in Hammonton, Atlantic City, and at Seaview Resort in Galloway. The Noyes Shop: Hammonton opened in 2008 and specializes in custom framing. The Noyes Gallery at Kramer Hall in Hammonton is the newest addition to the vibrant Arts District in Downtown Hammonton, and The Noyes Museum’s satellite exhibition spaces. It is located at 30 Front Street, Hammonton, NJ 08037. In February 2010, The Noyes Museum of Art formed a partnership with Stockton College (now Stockton University) to form The Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton University. Through a 2013 partnership with the CRDA, The Noyes Museum opened The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, a unique multi-use arts and retail space at 2200 Fairmount Avenue in Atlantic City.
