New Jersey’s Quirky And Mysterious Palace Of Depression Is Open For Tours This Month

The Palace of Depression in Vineland is certainly one of New Jersey’s strangest places. Quirky and compelling, it has a rich history and a variety of interesting features. Generally closed to the public, it will be open several weekends this month for rare fundraising tours. A visit will help support maintenance and improvement efforts, and I’d like to keep this Garden State treasure around forever.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There’s tons to discover, and you’ll want to keep an eye on the walls – there’s a lot hidden in the design. You’re sure to be delighted by what The Palace has to offer but the best is yet to come. The Palace will be open for tours on November 9, 10, 16, and 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (weather permitting). Admission will be $10 (cash only) with all proceeds going towards maintenance and improvements at The Palace. Tours will depart approximately every 30 minutes.
