Went there several years ago with people from my office, all Realtors. We enjoyed hearing about the history and seeing furniture created by him. Many pieces looked extremely uncomfortable to sit on. Good for history buffs, but older children might by interested this, too. Your forum does not permit answers about when one was there older than August 2015. It... More

My husband and I visited on a whim recently since we live in the area but have never seen the museum. Gustav Stickley, the father of the Arts and Crafts movement designed every detail and piece of furniture in this house. It has been painstakingly restored and makes a lovely and informative way to spend 2 hours. The docents are... More

This place is about the "craft" but no effort was made to display and showcase the "craft". Replicas of joinery work on to touch and feel the wood would certainly make it more interesting.

Nestled on the side of a mountain (hill?) overlooking Mount Tabor gives a great historical view of the life of an Industrial era family that chose life in "the mountains" to raise their family.

Beautiful setting for a Craftman home. Our tour guide was exceptionally well informed. I learned so much about Gustafson Stickley. The historic preservation society has retuned this home to its original state and managed to get some of the furnishings back. gorgeous. The home is. Only open by tour Thurs to Sunday. It is well worth planning your visit.

The Stickley Museum is a lovingly curated collection of furniture and other pieces designed by Gustave Stickley, an American heavily involved in the Arts and Crafts movement on the site and in the building that Stickley designed for lofty purposes . It is staffed mostly by volunteers with a love of the place and its history. Highly recommended!

Very interesting styles. Reminded me of Allaire Village. Good walking tours inside and out. I had got a pass at my local library

An idyllic museum set on set on 30 acres of property with walking paths is a very nice to spend an afternoon. There are tours of Gustav Stickley’s house and examples of his contribution to the Arts and Crafts style. They also offer special exhibits as well as a Christmas decoration exhibit during the holidays.

A small museum, like this one, must have a compelling story to tell- this one has that story, the vision of Gustav Stickley and the legacy of the the wonderful aesthetic perspective that survives 100 years past his most important work. It also must have excellent docents- and this one has that, too, as Pete was filled with informative/amusing anecdotes... More
