The Georgian House (grid reference ST581728) is a historic building at 7 Great George Street, Bristol, England. It was originally built around 1790 for John Pinney, a wealthy sugar merchant and slave plantation owner, and is now furnished and displayed as a typical late 18th century town house. The period house museum includes a drawing room, eating room, study, kitchen, laundry and housekeeper’s room. There is also a small display on slavery and sugar plantations. The Georgian House has been a branch of Bristol City Council since it was presented to the city as a museum in 1937.
The museum is open from 1 April to 31 December on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, 11am-4pm. It received 32,127 visitors in 2019.

Beautiful museum. Quite small but perfectly formed. Only open weekends and Monday and Tuesday.

A historical gem. Free entry too. Friendly volunteers.

Really interesting way to spend an hour or so in the heart of Bristol. Well worth a visit.

I surprisingly enjoyed walking around the house seeing how rich people lived 300 years ago. The staff were very knowledgeable and it's the kind of place to visit on the way to The Bristol Museum.

The staff is nice and there are not a lot of people visiting. It's bigger than you'd thought and the staff is willing to answer any questions and tell stories (or just leave you alone if you want to)

A great place to visit with slightly older kids (7/8+) in Bristol which is also free!
