Nestled in historic Morristown, the Morris Museum is located in the Twin Oaks mansion on 6 Normandy Heights Rd. The ever-expanding museum hosts permanent collections that range from extensive mineral and fossil collections to costumes and instruments. The museum is also home to the Bickford Theater, which has seasonal performances—a variety of plays and concerts put on by various local performance groups. The museum also has an extensive art gallery.
A wonderful chance to explore the museum and get out of the cold comes with an upcoming series entitled “Tea and Treasures”.
This event will be hosted by guest lecturer James Howard; the owner of Morristown’s “Cosy Cupboard Tea Room.” Settle in for interesting conversation and the chance to learn about the history of tea, the science being brewing the best cup of oolong possible, and the amazing health benefits of teas.
Of course refreshments will be provided!
The event will be on Wednesday, February 17th, at 2pm.
Tickets are $10, and advanced registration is required. (You can reach the box office directly at: 973-971-3706).
Another exciting upcoming event is the museum’s new “Chocolate Festival”!
The event will be running on Saturday, February 6, 2016. Admission will be between 11am to 4pm.
Some of the inspiring and delicious activates of the day will include family friendly chocolate inspired games!
You and your family will have the chance to meet a chocolatier, design your own chocolate bar wrapper, create some hot chocolate-oriented arts and crafts, and even compete in chocolate themed bingo!
The Museum also offers a reduced combination ticket for admission to the Children’s Theatre show: Miss Nelson is Missing, adapted from the book originally by Mike Artell.
