About the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts (METC)

Located in the heart of downtown Madison, NJ, and housed in a 1900 Richardsonian-Romanesque Revival building listed on the National Register of Historic places, the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts explores 18th- and 19th-century American history with a focus on New Jersey.  Drawing on its collection of over 8000 hand tools and their products, METC uses material culture to interpret the lives and technologies of people who lived and worked before the rise of large-scale industrialization in this country.  The Museum offers visitors of all ages a broad range of changing exhibits and related programs that address many facets of early American history, craftsmanship, and the diversity of trades performed by both men and women.
