Welcome to Macculloch Hall Historical Museum

a Federal style mansion built in 1810 that now houses ten period rooms and three exhibition galleries that change year round. In addition to collections of furniture, porcelain, objects related to the presidency of the United States, and antique carpets, the museum counts among its treasures the nation’s largest collection of original art by political cartoonist Thomas Nast.  

Lunch with the Librarian

Please join us Wednesdays at noon in August and September for this free event, courtesy of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.  Pre-school children and their caregivers can bring their lunch and enjoy stories under the old beech tree.  Please enter the garden through the driveway gate.

Shop Locally!

The Museum Shop carries a number of Thomas Nast items including ornaments, Christmas cards and other gifts year ‘round, as well as gifts and stationary with images inspired by our decorative arts collections.  New this year is our signature Nast ornament for 2015. Come see what we have during touring hours, Wed., Thur. and Sun. 1-4pm.
