What museums can I visit in Bristol?

Discover what a Bristol sugar plantation and slave owner’s home might have looked like around 1790, down at The Georgian House Museum, about a five to 10 minute walk from the city centre.

The house was built in 1790 for John Pinney, slave plantation owner and sugar merchant. It was also where the enslaved man of African descent, Pero Jones lived. A small display explores John Pinney’s involvement in the sugar trade and the life of his enslaved valet, Pero Jones. View the Dining Room, Drawing Room, and Study as they would have appeared in the 18th century. Explore the kitchen, laundry, and housekeeper’s rooms, where the house’s business was conducted.
