Hours & Admission



Nestled into the banks of the Delaware River in historic Bristol Borough, The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Museum was home to the Grundy family whose ancestors were among the first European settlers in Bucks County. The Grundy Museum allows a visit to the world of this wealthy late Victorian-era family. This world is interpreted through the furnishings and objects in the home, most of which were owned and used by the Grundy Family.


The Museum will be closed December 2019 through late Spring 2020 for restorations. Due to the COVID-19 crisis the restorations are under a "stop-work" order. An opening date is undetermined at this time.


Please stay safe and healthy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Our permanent exhibit "Made in America: The Grundy Mill and the Business if Spinning Wool" will be available when the Grundy Library reopens.
