“Wonderful Tour”

The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 25, 2014

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 the 2nd floor spaces. 2 of the 2nd floor spaces have not been restored yet.
Our GPS took us right to the parking lot, using the address suggested on their website, 5 Manor Lane, Morris Plains, NJ 07950. Note that on 53 Northbound there was a sign stating the Stickley Museum was ahead. It did not give any directional information. We followed our GPS onto 10, which turned out fine.
My last point is general travel advice, if you get discount coupons for any place of interest, store them in your suitcase until they expire. You never know when a trip will unexpectedly put you in the area.

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 the tour to begin. Great little gift shop too.

If you are not familiar with Gustav Stickley, then you must see his farm and learn the history of how it came to be. Lots of original pieces of furniture with the house. A wonderful time learning about the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900's begun by Stickley in the US.
