The Hunterdon Art Museum is located in a 19th century stone mill that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Visitors can experience the works of both established and emerging artists and a variety of programs and art classes for children and adults.
The original Stone Mill, now home to the Museum, was re-built after a fire in 1836 on the site of a grist mill that was to have provided ground wheat for General Washington's revolutionary army during its encampment at Morristown, NJ.
The mill continued in operation until 1952 when it was purchased and converted into an art center and national school for craftsmen.
Since 1952, the Art Museum continued a series of renovations to the original grist stone mill and In 2000 the Art Museum completed a major renovation to the lobby by moving the entrance back to the Center Street with a new museum gift shop. It later was expanded to include the ArtZone where families with young children can create art while visiting the museum.
The Art Museum is now a very active center of art exhibitions and education including the following programs:
Art Education - Offers more than 200 classes educational programs at both the museum and in the community.
Birthday Parties & Art Parties - Art parties are a great way to celebrate a birthday or other occasion. These children parties include art projects such as tie-dye, clay, jewelry-making, and print making and more.
Guided Tours - Tours are available for schools, camp programs, community centers etc. and are adaptable for children and adults.
HAM Young Artists Showcase - This program provides school children in Kindergarten through High School with a venue to exhibit their art in one of the museum galleries.
Scouts Program - Scouts earn merit badges in after school and weekend workshops. Many of our programs are scheduled through the local Girl Scout and Boy Scout Councils, but instructors can custom design a program to meet the needs of a specific troop or pack as well.
