Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum

A tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle
Bartow-Pell Mansion The Bronx New York

Built sometime between 1836 and 1842, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum offers a tranquil escape from the urban hustle-and-bustle. The building is a perfect example of how people used to live in the Pelham Bay Park area; it was a “country” existence. The Mansion became a museum in 1946, immersing visitors in the gardens and opulent landscape. Tours, public programs, and workshops enable one to expand his/her horizons in a unique setting.

The grounds also include a Carriage House that is open to visitors and tours. The building itself is built in a Grecian style and offers many rotating exhibitions throughout the year. Many of the Museum’s activities utilize their surroundings as such and are themed to 19th century life. Whether you’re a tourist or a native, this place is worth a look if you want to see a different side of New York City.
