  • This is a fully comprehensive museum with both modern/contemporary art and some classical pieces. The place is pretty expansive and the layout is great. They also have a few sections and rooms for kid...  read more »
  • Offerings change over the years, but it is a nice, local, friendly museum. GREAT for class trips! They have scientific things, animals, clothing, historic, geological wonders, etc. 
  • This is not a very large museum, but it has one of the most interesting exhibits I've ever seen. The mechanical musical instruments and automata exhibit was so cool! I spent over an hour in there look...  read more »
  • Poor. I took my daughter, grandson, and 10-week old granddaughter to the yoyo show. It was a good show, but when I purchased tickets, there was a sign stating the everyone must have a ticket "by order of the Morris Township Fire Marshall." I questioned why a 10-week old, being held by the mother, needed a ticket, and they claimed that it was the Fire Marshall's order. I spoke with Linda Morris, the director of the museum, after talking with the Fire Marshall (who said there was no such order). She eventually got back to me and said that it may have been a previous Fire Marshall who ordered that, but because they have to track how many people are in the audience everyone, including a 10-week old, had to have a ticket. I have never heard of anything like this before. Just a way to rip-off people. I'll never be back. I asked Linda to run this by the Board of Directors, and she reluctantly agreed to let me know their response. I'm following up for early October.
  • Tremendous place for young kids. Impressive mechanical music boxes and dolls. Highly recommend the Guinness collection
  • A bit overpriced but I guess it's nice to have a local museum
  • A wonderful local museum designed to introduce kids to the museum experience and also engage adults in some creative and unexpected exhibits such as recent ones around hollywood costumes, tea set collections, etc. There is something for everyone in the family and it is a very realistic size for bringing an entire family. Staff is warm and excited in the material they have to share with visitors. Guinness collection is a little dark - but i suspect that is because of what the exhibit is? It might be a good idea to explain those aspects of what it takes to keep an exhibit like that in good shape so it all makes sense. Great value for a membership.
  • What a waste of money it was for my family to go there today. It started just at the entrance, as we were paying $34.00 for two adults and two kids, we noticed the sign that offered the same amount of people for 25% off. Do you think the guy would let us get the discount? Nope. Then, it was on to what amounted to a museum who must have had a budget of one you'd find in a third-world country. Plenty of rocks, some Indian artifacts, a poorly-lit music box display... just a bunch of boring garbage! Do yourself a favor- go into NYC and see real museums.
