This is a wonderfully preserved place to visit; a great museum. Nice grounds for children to have fun on; beautiful scenery and not too much to take in for an afternoon. Give a donation to enter. I highly recommend.

This place is a really cool piece of NJ history, with a lot of buildings still standing and kept up, it's cool to see how the workers at Batsto lived and how the owners lived. Mansion tours are extra, but it is cool to see....More
