Hamilton House Museum

The Hamilton House Museum is a 19th-century Dutch house, which features three time periods – Victorian, Federal, and colonial. This museum encourages visitors to imagine themselves living in the past as they step through the visualization of six rooms, each showcasing different periods of time and patterns of life. Visitors can tour the house as well as its gardens, spring house, and granary – exploring almost 200 years of rural American life.


Today the site is owned by the City of Clifton. Through a shared services agreement, the museum is operated by Passaic County’s Department of Cultural & Historic Affairs. The Hamilton House Museum can be permitted for public use, and helps host various events and programming throughout the year. Visit hamiltonhousemusem.org to learn more.
