  • Excellent Historic site and Museum with intelligent docents giving tours of the Richard Stockton's (signer of the Declaration of Independence) home.
  • Don't miss the Lindbergh exhibition which was excellent and beautifully displayed. An excellent portrayal of a complicated man.
  • Morven Museum & Gardens is a real "gem" in NJ. We hosted a corporate event on May 29th 2015 & the venue is absolutely beautiful. The historical significance of Morven is very interesting & fascinating. All the staff we had contact with were very professional, courteous & helpful. Also Diana Griffin who handles the private events at Morven was terrific. She went above & beyond making sure everything was in order & perfect for our group. I have arranged many events over 35 years & i can unequivocally say the Diana was simply the best !!!.
  • Wow
  • Be sure to visit when there's a special exhibition.
