What is the one thing you want people to know about the Morven Museum & Garden? One thing I think people should know is that we are in the planning stages of a new and exciting exhibit that will open in mid-November of this year. It is called “Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Couple of an Age” and it will give visitors an in depth look at the lives of Charles and Anne Lindbergh, America’s- and New Jersey’s- most famous couple of the 20th century. More information about the exhibit is available at http://morven.org/lindbergh/ Another thing I love about Morven is that our various exhibitions, events and programs interpret the cultural history of New Jersey. Personally I think that our state’s rich cultural history is its best-kept secret and it is something that is sadly not very well preserved. Visiting Morven is a great way to learn about and experience New Jersey’s history in an engaging and unique atmosphere.

Princeton’s biggest secret? Without a doubt the Morven Garden. It is always open to the public with free parking. It’s a beautiful and peaceful spot to have a picnic with family and friends or to simply relax and enjoy the outdoors on a sunny day!
