The Morris Museum?s early beginning started with the collection that began from the first collection of the Morristown Neighborhood House. Since its inception, education has always been an intrinsic part of the Museum?s program. Its first headworker, Mrs. Aldus Pierson, gave talks to the children about a wide range of cultural expressions that are represented by the collections. Later on, it occupied the Maple Avenue School that enabled the staff to enhance programs and cultivate relations with nearby schools.

The Museum acquired the Twin Oaks in 1963. This Georgian-style structure has become the central point of the museum because of its architectural significance. Years after, its gallery space was expanded and it featured its own 312-seat theatre. The Museum was again expanded in 1990. Today, it features a variety of pieces including costumes, textiles, dolls, toys, fine and decorative art.
