I had seen the sign for this museum on Rte. 10 many times but didn't go until a friend invited me. I am not well versed in architecture, style,decorating, etc. and only knew of the Arts and Crafts movement by name. Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The museum does an excellent job of showcasing and explaining Stickley and... More

We really enjoyed visiting the Stickley home. It was a fascinating step back in time to the Arts and Crafts movement. We loved the home, the furnishings just as they were and the grounds were pretty to walk around, even on the coldest winter day. The docents are knowledgeable and dedicated and shared their enthusiasm.

Gustaf Stickley, if you're a fan of Antiques Roadshow, made a lot of excellent furniture. This was his home and workshop. The guided tours are excellent, with Stickley's story well told. There's lots of furniture to see and a nice, but small, gift shop. This place is a gem.

A little hard to find, but no better place for a quick afternoon dose of early 20th century up by your bootstraps history, original "Stickely" house and furniture. Travelers in the area from elsewhere can easily add it to Washington's HQ in close by Morristown.

The Stickley Museum is an oasis in the sprawl of Northern New Jersey. Located right off Rt.10, the museum was the home of Gustav Stickley, one o the leading exponents of the Arts & Crafts movement in the United States. The house can only be visited on tours which last about an hour, so be sure to check the times... More

Today I visited the Gustav Stickley Home and Museum off Route 10 W/B just past Rt 53. This is the family home of one of the great names of the Craftsmen Arts and Crafts movement. Stickley is known for a distinctive line of furniture from the early 20th Century. The family home is nicely preserved and there is a wonderful... More

When you enter the log house you leave the hectic plastic world behind and enter a place where nature is seen and felt in every glance around each room. The artistry and simplicity of furnishings and rooms built a century ago are an inspiration. The tour guide made the hour a pleasant and informative journey to a place you will... More

I had an excellent tour of the Stickley Museum by a very well informed docent. The entire tour takes a little over an hour and if early turn of the 20th century Arts and Crafts style is your thing, make sure to take time to visit it. The grounds are very nice but currently, the lodge house (which the Stickleys... More

Visited The Stickley Museum as Craftsman Farms today. I've always been interested in Mr. Stickley's furniture and the Mission Oak style. I had been meaning to take the short trip to this museum for several years now and I'm glad I did. The Docent leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable and affable. She seemed genuinely interested in both Stickley and... More

Landscaping and buildings in rural setting exemplify Arts and Crafts movement. Stickley designed furniture and houses using browns and greens. Four fireplaces are adorned with large bronze and copper hoods carrying hammered philosophical messages about life and work. The log house was the home of Gustav Stickley, his wife and children for about a decade. The original furniture reflects careful... More
