The Georgian House Museum

Discover what a Bristol sugar plantation and slave owner’s home might have looked like around 1790. Eleven rooms spread over four floors reveal what life was like above and below stairs, from the kitchen in the basement where servants prepared meals to the elegant formal rooms above. Free entry.

Visitor information

To support the wellbeing of our staff and to ensure visitor safety, we have taken the decision to keep The Georgian House Museum closed until the beginning of April 2022, when the new season begins.

We appreciate this decision will be disappointing to those who take great comfort and pride from the city’s museums. We are equally disappointed – for us, preserving the city’s heritage and welcoming visitors is as much a vocation as a job, and a source of great satisfaction.

We look forward to seeing you in the spring. In the meantime, both Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and M Shed are open as usual.

While it’s not quite the same as visiting in person, you can explore the Georgian House through our 360° tour.
