DESCRIPTION

Join us for a dynamic new exhibit featuring the Garden State in the 1950s. The postwar boom led to an atom-powered future of gleaming appliances and fast cars! The influence of 50's culture is still going strong today, with many roots in New Jersey.

The Cornelius Low House/Middlesex County Museum is a Historic National Register home built in 1741 for Cornelius Low a wealthy merchant of Raritan Landing. The home is one of the best examples of Georgian architecture in New Jersey. The Low House has a dual purpose to interpret the history of this fine structure but also to research and mount rotating exhibits about New Jersey history.

Recent exhibits have included a Centennial display on New Jersey during World War I and an exhibit on New Jersey Diners.

Visit our current exhibit (March 31 2019 through December 27 2020) titled: Mid-Century New Jersey: The Garden State in the 1950s.
