It's time to go back in time at the Lambert Castle Museum, where you can not only explore the grounds, but you can also visit the museum's rich variety of historical artifacts, maps, and pictures within the exhibitions!
Let the kids imagination take hold as they stalk the ancient corridors and imagine life all those years ago!
Built in 1892, Lambert Castle now features a museum with both exhibits and furnishings that are reflective of the local Passaic County history. Your journey through this historic house will be via self-guided tour where you can really feel like you are living in another time.
The castle is a known landmark in Northern New Jersey, and was once a private resident that hosted some pretty notable guests, including President McKinley!
