Poor. I took my daughter, grandson, and 10-week old granddaughter to the yoyo show. It was a good show, but when I purchased tickets, there was a sign stating the everyone must have a ticket "by order of the Morris Township Fire Marshall." I questioned why a 10-week old, being held by the mother, needed a ticket, and they claimed that it was the Fire Marshalls order. I spoke with Linda Morris, the director of the museum, after talking with the Fire Marshall (who said there was no such order). She eventually got back to me and said that it may have been a previous Fire Marshall who ordered that, but because they have to track how many people are in the audience everyone, including a 10-week old, had to have a ticket. I have never heard of anything like this before. Just a way to rip-off people. Ill never be back. I asked Linda to run this by the Board of Directors, and she reluctantly agreed to let me know their response. Im following up for early October.
A wonderful local museum designed to introduce kids to the museum experience and also engage adults in some creative and unexpected exhibits such as recent ones around hollywood costumes, tea set collections, etc. There is something for everyone in the family and it is a very realistic size for bringing an entire family. Staff is warm and excited in the material they have to share with visitors. Guinness collection is a little dark - but i suspect that is because of what the exhibit is? It might be a good idea to explain those aspects of what it takes to keep an exhibit like that in good shape so it all makes sense. Great value for a membership.
What a waste of money it was for my family to go there today. It started just at the entrance, as we were paying $34.00 for two adults and two kids, we noticed the sign that offered the same amount of people for 25% off. Do you think the guy would let us get the discount? Nope. Then, it was on to what amounted to a museum who must have had a budget of one youd find in a third-world country. Plenty of rocks, some Indian artifacts, a poorly-lit music box display... just a bunch of boring garbage! Do yourself a favor- go into NYC and see real museums.
I recently visited the Morris Museum for the Toothpick World Exhibit. The exhibit was incredible. We were able to visit on a pay as you wish night (second and third Thursday of the month from 4 PM to 8 PM). The museum is generally only open until 5, so these late hours allowed us to come by after work and check out this limited time exhibit. We have done the same in the past for the lego exhibit. Definitely recommend checking out their high profile temporary installations!
Seems big donor converted his private collection into museum. Loved the fully functional train town. Some of the weekdays evening has fee free entry.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Guinness collection of mechanical instruments, and the model trains. The Guinness speaker was very knowledgeable .
I liked the Morris Museum because it had a variety of exhibits. From musical boxes to dinosaurs, I felt I received a well rounded tour.
Its okay I wont say its the best but it is pretty small specially since they reduce their trains so I dont like coming here that much.
Attended a wedding reception there - beautiful venue. Good food, cool to experience the exhibition during cocktail hour.
Tremendous place for young kids. Impressive mechanical music boxes and dolls. Highly recommend the Guinness collection
Its a lovely collection...the lino glass exhibit was fabulous. The music box/ automation demo GREAT... enjoyable.
Nice collection of stones The evolution of musical instruments.. Indian musical section touched my heart
Nice exhibits! Good for young kids, especially the music section. A lot of interactive elements.
Smaller museum, but a good variety of exhibits. Check for special exhibits.
This place is great for kids and family. Kids would love this place!
Great exhibits for a local museum. Ideal for childrens school trips.
Super fun train exhibit. Cant wait to go back and explore further.
Small but nice. The autotamatoms are worth the entry fee alone.
A bit overpriced but I guess its nice to have a local museum
