Whether you're into American History or just want to enjoy the falls beneath this old building a stop here is enriching and worthy of picture taking. The water wheel (actually works) is a prominent feature of this converted mill. Best pictures are from the opposite side of the falls (over the iron bridge going into the town of Clinton). A...

The landscape with the mill, the river, the old buildings and objects and the beautiful birds make this place really awesome! It's definitely a place to visit if you are around.

Visit the Red Mil and entertain the entire family. Across the river and waterfall is the Hunterdon Art Museum. Visit both the same day. The grounds of the Red Mill include a one room schoolhouse, an old fashioned store, a blacksmith shop and a log cabin. Visit the main building and find tools of old and special exhibits. Throughout the... More

The Red Mill Museum Village has interpretive exhibits, a functioning mill wheel, great interactive tours and one of the few operating blacksmith shops in New Jersey. It's also a venue for a variety of special events that fill weekends throughout the spring, summer and fall. Well worth a visit from everyone, particularly in conjunction with a day including a visit... More

Visiting the Red Mill Museum Village was like spending the day in a small New England town. It's a charming town you can just stroll through visiting the little shops and stopping for something to eat in one of the many dining options. There are wonderful photo opportunities, the Red Mill, the Victorian homes, the Christmas décor on homes, the... More

Lovely little museum in a beautiful area of NJ. Perfect for a day trip paired with a nice cup of coffee. Btw the coffee shop across the museum is pretty good!

I live in Clinton and although I see the Clinton Red Mill nearly every day it has been a long time since I actually went inside the museum. This Thanksgiving weekend with grandchildren in tow we went into town for Dickens Days. It was a lovely afternoon spent in the quaint town of Clinton, chatting to a Victorian Santa, Charles... More

This is a picturesque historic site. The museum is self directed for a nominal fee of $8.00. Originally bought to process wool. It was the site of a saw mill, linseed oil mill, gristmill, and waterwheel. Take your time to visit this museum and village from the early 1800's. Cross the bridge in front and view fisherman casting, wading, and... More

The Red Mill is probably one of the most photographed and painted sites in the state of NJ. It is situated on the Raritan River on the edge of the town of Clinton. A mill race and water wheel are still seen near the waterfall which powered the mill as part of the picturesque scene from the iron bridge over... More

The Red Mill Museum is a wonderful and well maintained place to visit, has many cool, historical exhibits, and very nice helpful people working there. It should not be confused with the "Art" Museum, which is run by a privately owned corporation, which sells memberships, classes, and rents out parties and banquets there, but does not supply parking anymore, nor...
