Owner description: Located in downtown Morristown, N.J., Macculloch Hall has been part of the local community for over 200 years, first as the home to community-minded residents, George and Louisa Macculloch (1775-1858, 1785-1863), and since 1950, as a not-for-profit museum and garden. Founder W. Parsons Todd (1877-1976) endowed MHHM as a resource for all Morristown and Morris County residents. A Federal brick mansion, Macculloch Hall was built in 1810 by George Perrott Macculloch (1775-1858), the "Father of the Morris Canal." Today this historic house and decorative arts museum comprises nine period rooms, two exhibition galleries, a dedicated classroom, and an expansive formal garden, which is open to the public free of charge.

“Macculloch museum is an average museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

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 person and not worth it. There are other historic sites in Morristown of better value and interest.
