“It has been a really remarkable spring,” said Jill Barry, executive director of Morven Museum & Garden. “We thank all of our supporters for the successes of our plant sales, outdoor tours, and recent 4th of July Jubilee in a Bag. People were tremendously understanding when we canceled Morven in May and continued their support, enabling us to get to where we are today. We are delighted to announce that, after weeks of preparation, we are ready to safely reopen our doors on Thursday, July 9 and welcome our friends back to Morven Museum & Garden.”
In addition, Morven’s popular exhibition, “Dreaming of Utopia: Roosevelt, New Jersey,” has been extended to January 24, 2021. “Our venerable front porch wisteria has even graced us with a second blooming, just in time for our reopening,” Barry added.
Noting that safety is of utmost importance, Morven is following all CDC and local health official guidelines.
Barry went on to note that during the month of July, Morven will welcome its members, known as Friends of Morven, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily, closing from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. for cleaning. From 1 to 4 p.m. Morven will be open to members and the general public. more
