Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Experience Downton Abbey, Bristol-Style! Step inside the Grundy Museum and experience the life of a wealthy industrialist family in their Queen Anne-style home. The home's location along the banks of the scenic Delaware River provided the perfect place for the Grundy family to retreat after long days directing operations at the Grundy Mill. Today, the rooms are appointed as if the family has just stepped out for the afternoon. This decorative arts collection has provenance to the Grundy family. All ages are invited to take a free guided tour and learn about the life of one of the Keystone State's most powerful politicians. Don't miss the award-winning gardens and the self-guided Bristol History Trail.

The docent here must be related to my husband's family somehow because she knew the same stories about working at the mill as his relatives told him. She made the home come alive telling about the history of each family member and the changes made to the home over time. Visiting here made us feel connected with history. A great old home with interesting built in features and a delightful view of the Delaware River. Watch the parking meters on the side streets. (Free parking on the street in front of the home.)

If you get to tour the mansion, it is wonderful. I would have loved to live in it. Beautiful woodwork, gorgeous windows and incredible antiques! A must for local history buffs.
The library next door is a great place to study and sit a gaze at the river!

I've been going to this library off and on most of my life.Starting in the 1st grade when the old St Marks school was directly across the street until I left to move out of state.The Grundy Library has grown to meet the needs of Bristol and and the surrounding area,going from books and vinyl records to computers,cd's and digital technology.There is always something on display about the long history of Bristol and its citizens.There is nobody who won't enjoy a visit here.There are also benches with a beautiful view of the river on the back patio.
