The Georgian House Museum, Bristol

4.6
#8 of 23 in Museums in Bristol
Learn about 18th-century Bristol society and take in the authentic atmosphere at The Georgian House Museum, a perserved townhouse now serving as a museum. Containing some of the original decor and furniture, the antique home remains much as it was in the late 18th century. The knowledgeable and helpful staff will teach you about Bristol's past, a time when wealth could be acquired by simply producing sugar, and slavery was a common and accepted practice. The classist society that ruled this era is quite apparent here in the "above the stairs" and "below the stairs" layout. The house is not only significant for its place in architectural history but was also graced with the presence of well-known poets such as Wordsworth and Coleridge.

  • A museum well worth a visit. Staff is very helpful and capable of answering all sorts of questions about the house and it’s former inhabitants in a casual and friendly way. I was quite impressed by the extra info they provided and had a great time there.
  • Another really interesting museum in Bristol. Really enjoyed my visit experiencing life in a Georgian manor. Don't miss it.
