Museum of Early Trades and Crafts

The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts in Madison is currently closed in preparation for their next exhibit “Good Earth: Pottery and Terra Cotta Industries in New Jersey”.  The upcoming exhibit focuses on the New Jersey clay industry from the earthenware jugs of the colonial kitchen to the terra cotta masterpieces that shaped American skylines in the late 19th century.  The museum will reopen to the public on Tuesday, July 19.  

In addition to the new METC sign, you may have noticed that the museum has been undergoing an exterior restoration project.  The preservation project was made possible with assistance from the County Historic Preservation Grant Program.  Efforts have not gone unnoticed as the Museum was recently honored by Morris County Freeholders with a Historic Preservation plaque.

Built in 1900, it was Madison’s original public library.  Over 45 years ago, it became the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts.  Such a gorgeous building and something to admire each time you drive through the center of town.
