Housed in a 1900 Richardsonian-Romanesque Revival
building listed on the National Register of Historic places, the
Museum explores 18th- and 19th-century American history, with a
focus on New Jersey. Drawing on its collection of over 8,000
hand tools and their products, METC uses material culture to
interpret the lives and technologies of people who lived and
worked before the rise of large-scale industrialization in this
country. The Museum offers visitors of all ages a broad range
of changing exhibits, and related programs that address many
facets of early American history, craftsmanship, and the
diversity of trades performed by men and women.
