This castle is fascinating with history. It tells the story of when silk industry was in Paterson. It's named after Lambert who was the founder of the silk business. The castle itself is amazing with its architect . And everything else you find in a castle. The views from the castle is awesome!

What a find, right in the heart of Paterson. Beautiful architecture, stained glass windows and lighting, carved wood, ironwork, marble all over, centuries-old parquet floors. On the second floor, the history of the silk business in NJ and its founder, Lambert, as well as the major strike that wiped out the industry in NJ. Oh, the Guiness record-winning largest spoon...

Lambert Castle as the name implies has the look and feel of a castle. It was built in 1892 by Catholina Lambert who owned a silk mill in the City of Paterson. Mr. Lambert's design is reminiscent of the castles in Great Britain. After Lambert's death in 1923, his family sold the building to the City of Paterson, which sold... More

I realize when I went, a lot of the Asa were closed due to re model work and renovation. They need the observation tower addressed sooner than later. It was a good trip. Took kids and their friends...7 and 11 in age, all girls. They like the spoon display and the art work. The castle itself is impressive. That is... More

the entire castle is NOT the museum, you only get to tour a few rooms. I grew up here and as a kid we would go there often, I wouldn't go back anytime soon (unless I had family/friends from outside of the US who wanted to see it.

It's hard to believe, but a Castle located on the outskirts of Paterson. Wonderful display of tapestries and antiques. Interesting to visit.

Lambert Castle is a mansion built of the side of Garret Mountains on the border with Clifton NJ and Paterson NJ. Built back in the 1890's by a silk manufacturer it is now the home of the Passaic County Historic Society. My family visited it twice as Christmas approached. First we shopped at a Christmas Boutique that filled all the... More
