Local history buffs and fans of William Carlos Williams will enjoy this museum and its small-scale, intimate events. Warning: front steps to museum are steep, (use the side entrance if open) as are the interior staircases.

Like many local and community museums, The Meadowlands Museum is dependent on the kindness of strangers as well as of friends to provide it with artifacts for preserving and to display. It is located in an old house on a busy road. Parking can be problematic. There is limited space inside. But what it lacks in physical amenities it more than balances with creativity and resourcefulness. This is another way of saying that its strengths come from not what it is but from who is staffing and guiding it. At the moment there are two informative displays featuring Becton Dickinson, which began in Rutherford, and the poet William Carlos Williams, who practiced medicine in Rutherford for many years. He delivered approximately 3000 babies, and the Museum is trying to organize a get-together of those he brought into the world.

The highlight for my son was the rocks that glow in the blue light, that was worth the visit in itself. I never knew New Jersey was so full of rocks like this! There are also many displays about local artifacts, mostly from the European settlement of farms in the local area and how the Europeans lived in the area when they first arrived. The museum is in an old home. It's not a giant place, but it is worth a short visit, especially if you are from the local area or are interested in these neat rocks!
