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

After my 3 visits, I was so entranced by the grounds and the log house, the history of the Arts & Crafts Movement and Gus himself... More

We squeezed this tour into a tight schedule in Princeton, and are so glad that we did! Anyone who has interest in the Arts & Crafts Movement, Architecture, Self Sufficiency, Sustainability, or History should take this tour. Our guide was excellent. The tour included a brief walk outside, then a tour of all the 1st floor spaces and most of... More

This is valued for its house and famous furniture style. There are tours and special exhibits sometimes. Highlights a famous style of building, how a family lived in times past, and provides some area history. Beautiful piece of land and a nice place to walk around on a tour.

This is the home of Gustav Stickley - wonderful home brought to life with interesting docents who provided great details on this man's life and craft. A surprising amount of original furnishings and the home brought back to the times of Stickley. Good tour around including the upstairs bedrooms - all very interesting. Nice yard to stroll while waiting for... More
