• Overview

    The John F. Peto Studio Museum is located in beautiful historic Island heights, along the Toms River and Barnegat Bay. It features the home and studio of John Frederick Peto (1854-1907), the renowned late 19th century American still life painter in the trompe l'oeil style. The studio museum is a historic house museum that documents the aesthetics, work habits and lifestyle of a significant American artist. The house, constructed in 1889 and the gardens have been professionally restored to preserve the integrity of the artist's vision. Original furnishings capture the home as it would have been in Peto's time along with displays of original artifacts as depicted in many of the artist's paintings. The museum offers a variety of programs including: rotating exhibitions, educational programs, cultural series, garden programs and special events.
