Use of Grounds

The Grundy Museum and Library grounds are privately owned by The Grundy Foundation and made available to accommodate use by individuals and small groups.

You are welcome to enjoy the Riverfront Park and Rooftop Patio Garden for passive recreational activities during open hours and are asked to respect these premises by observing posted signage and cooperating with staff. The Foundation reserves the right to close the premises without notice. For park and patio hours, click here.


Passive recreational activities include, but are not limited to:


The Grundy Museum and Library grounds offer breathtaking views of the scenic Delaware River and Burlington Island and serve as an ideal backdrop for wedding, engagement, prom, family, and nature photographs.


Wedding and prom parties must receive prior approval from The Grundy Foundation. To apply, click here




Plein Air (in the open air) painting is allowed during open hours. Please leave the grounds as you found them and respect the wishes of the gardeners and other guests. Set up on lawns only and allow adequate space for movement around you. Be sure to stay with your equipment and use care in cleaning your equipment. And be sure to take out what you bring in.

Site Rental

We regret that the Museum, Library, and Foundation grounds are not available for wedding ceremonies or receptions. For an outdoor ceremony in historic Bristol Borough, contact the Borough of Bristol.

Meeting Rooms

The adjacent Grundy Library offers meeting room facilities. Non-profit groups may request time for educational, civic, or cultural programs which are publicly advertised and open to the public.
