You don't need a lot of time to visit Morven, an hour at most, except if you're going to their Wednesday tea.

Morven is one of New Jersey's great treasures. See the Festival of Trees

The museum was lovely and the docent gave a detailed, interesting history. Unfortunately, the afternoon tea was not available through end of Nov as indicated on their website--but well worth the trip anyway!

The museum tour was very interesting. I don't think the garden is worth mentioning.

From Our Editors

In 1754, Richard Stockton, a leading attorney who would go on to be a signer of the Declaration of Independence, acquired land on his grandfather's 5,500-acre tract to build a home. The house later traded hands among Stockton family members until the 20th century, when it served as the state's first Governor's Mansion, eventually housing five governors.

Since its restoration and conversion into the Morven Museum & Garden in 2004, galleries on two floors of the dwelling have housed permanent and temporary exhibitions relating to New Jersey history and culture, as well as the Morven property, now a National Historic Landmark. As guests wander the museum’s halls, Stockton family portraiture and decorative art speaks of past eras while contemporary art and photographs keep visitors grounded in the present day. Meanwhile, 5 more acres outside host a massive garden that includes a recreation of Morven's old Colonial Revival¬–style blooming garden and its charismatic, singing Venus flytrap.
