The museum of Morven Princeton NJ was acquired in 1954 by the government and had since then been open to the public. Prior to that, it was originally built as a family home for Declaration of Independence signer Richard Stockton. The museum of Morven Princeton had also served as Mansion for the New Jersey Governor.

In 2004, restoration and conversion required to turn the place into a National Historic Landmark had been completed. Now, the Morven Museum & Garden boasts of one of the state?s finest museum collections and public gardens that symbolize the state?s cultural heritage.

The garden features 18th ? 19th century heirloom annuals as well as a recreated Colonial Revival garden. The museum occupies a pair of floors and showcases various galleries that bear both temporary and permanent exhibits. Family portraits of the Stocktons as well as precious heirlooms and other belongings of the Boudinot, who had married into the Stocktons, are also in display.
