I had never visited despite knowing about this museum for a long time. Imposing house with many rooms. Displays and events change so there's always an interesting exhibit. Docent extremely knowledgeable and made the history of the house, the occupants and the surrounding area very meaningful.

This is a must-see for travelers interested in the how the upper middle class lived during the time period and the progressive roles of the Crane-Hone women in our nation's history. Executive director Amy Curry was our tour guide. She was knowledge, engaging and personable and so much fun! Our tour was jam-packed with in-depth information and comprehensive details. Beautiful,...

Beautiful home, lovingly cared for as a house museum as if the owners just stepped out. Traditional gardens maintained by local garden club with devotion and style. Special events from time to time. Current is Bridal Gowns fro 1800-1950's. Locals love it.

The really unique feature of this house is that they have a lot of the original furniture from the first and second owners, plus a treasure trove of clothing, photographs, etc. from subsequent owners. This really brings the house to life while giving visitors a taste of how the house, and its inhabitants, changed over time. The tour was very... More

What a beautifully preserved home! The recent Holly Walk was well worth it once we arrived at Acorn Hall. The docents were knowledgeable and friendly with a sense of humor. Them home decorated specially for the holidays! More history than we expected here. WELL WORTH THE VISIT!!!

A historical building housing exhibits and special shows. Good for history buffs and older children. Shows life in Morristown in the late 1800s and turn of the century.

This 3 story in-town Victorian mansion still features original furnishings. It was a summer home to the NY Schmerhorn family. Upper rooms feature exhibitas of regional interest. The gardens frame the back lawn and mimic English gardens with clumps of pereniels and flowering shrubs and bulbs. Open sundays. Events held here too.
