Stopped in on rainy Halloween day about mid afternoon. My friend and I got a personal tour of the Hall which is three floors showcasing furniture, household items/collections and generally an accounting of the home's occupants and social peers through these displays. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and got a tour by a knowledgeable young lady who definitely has... More

Have lived in Morristown for 30 years, getting ready to move and first visit to Macculloch Hall Historical Museum. Very nice tour of the house with a lot of history of the area, beautiful historic collection of furniture, household items and art work. Nice Nast exhibit. Gardens even in early spring are very nice.

It was raining -- and we like antiques, so we tried Macculloch. We were pleasantly surprised to see so many beautiful and interesting antiques from the Parson's collection. While we have visited many period homes and museums, we saw items at Macculloch that we had never seen before. There are some excellent examples of WIndsor chairs -- so many varieties!... More

We decided to see what Macculloch museum had to offer. My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised. After visiting many museums we never thought a small local museum could add to our knowledge about the little things. The docent was incredible and kept making us want to know more. The garden is lovely and allows for a very calming... More

We went to see the Civil War exhibit (Gone for Soldier) parked on the street (in front of the Thomas Nast house as it happens) We were greeted & asked if we wanted the house tour, we weren't sure & the woman encouraged us to register as she said it was included in the admission price which was 8.00 per...

Money for the mansion came from the vanished Morris Canal. On a great street full of Victorian houses, easy to imagine the heydays from the 19th century. Museum itself has a well curated collection of furniture and art. Be sure to make it only one stop on a Morristown walking tour. Look for the Thomas Nast House across the street... More

This is a true hidden treasure of a museum. It is just lovely with beautiful exhibits and lovely gardens. They have the largest collection of Thomas Nast's work in the US. I happen to have a passion for Thomas Nast's work anyway, but a visit to their collection is something that could take days to really appreciate. Thomas Nast lived... More

We visited the Macculoch museum to see the Civil War display which was interesting but poorly presented... Nothing to catch your interest. Fortunately there were some docents dressed as Union soldiers available to offer some insight... and stories. The guided tour of the Macculoch home was 45 minutes long. Unfortunately the guides were not terribly knowledgeable. Admission is $8 per... More
