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.
