The first [main] floor of the Lambert Castle Museum contains historical period rooms that interpret the Castle’s past as the home of Catholina Lambert, one of nineteenth century Paterson's most prominent silk textile manufacturers.   These rooms incorporate many of Lambert's original possessions as well as other historical items from the PCHS collections.  Docents will answer questions as museum visitors make their way around the first floor rooms.

Complementing the period rooms, the second floor of Lambert Castle Museum features several long-term exhibition galleries: folk art gallery; "Curiosities From The Collections" gallery; Julian Rix (prominent local artist) gallery; Great Falls gallery; portrait gallery; and local history gallery.  

After a two year closure, the third floor is once again open for visitors.  The third floor is used to house short term exhibits which change once or twice annually.



Please Note:  The historical period rooms and exhibitions at Lambert Castle Museum are open for only ten months-a-year, from mid-December through mid-October.  During the other eight weeks, exhibitions are closed for the Museum's largest annual fund-raising event, The Holiday House Boutique (please check the PCHS homepage for details about the Boutique and the exact dates of this year's exhibition schedule).


Lambert Castle is  accessible to individuals with mobility limitations. Our facility has elevator  access to all floors and disabled toilet stalls for both genders. Persons in extra wide wheelchairs may not be able to access all floors. Visitors who are visually-impaired may make an appointment for a guided tour, however most exhibition text is in large print (18 point or larger). There are currently no special accommodations for the hearing-impaired in our permanent exhibitions, however we try to include such accommodations into our changing exhibits.
