Plan a Visit to Bartow-Pell
Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, with its splendid Greek Revival interiors, is tucked away in a lovely, quiet corner of Pelham Bay Park – an area that was once home to more than 20 elegant country estates. As the only grand country house still in existence on Pelham Bay, it provides an important link to the social and architectural history of New York. Visitors are welcome to take a guided tour of the mansion and view our impressive collection of mid-19th century furnishings and fine and decorative arts. Or stroll around the grounds and the formal terraced garden behind the house.
Group Tours are available by appointment only.
Mansion and Carriage House tours begin at a quarter after the hour and are approximately 45 minutes in length.
Unless otherwise noted, all tours are guided. Please plan your visit accordingly. To view the program calendar, click here.
