Strauss Mansion Museum Sunday Open House
May 30 @ 12:00 pm - December 19 @ 4:00 pm
Built in 1893 by wealthy New York merchant Adolph Strauss, the Strauss Mansion is a 21-room Victorian era Queen Anne-style “cottage” erected on the Atlantic Highlands hillside. Stunning views of New York City, the harbor, and Sandy Hook, can be seen from the third floor Tower Room. The museum is open for free self-guided tours every Sunday from 12 – 4 PM, May 16 through December 19, 2021. Exhibits include Victorian-era period displays, a room dedicated to the history of the Lenni Lenape, collections of local history items, and a vast newspaper archives and library. Suggested donation is $5 per person. PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID 19, face coverings must be worn at all times while inside the Strauss Mansion and social distancing protocols apply with visitors not in your party. Attendance is limited due to reduced capacity and visitors will be allowed in on a first come, first serve basis. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
