Visiting Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, with its splendid Greek Revival interiors and country setting in Pelham Bay Park, is a unique New York City experience.

As the only grand 19th-century country house still in existence on Pelham Bay, the museum provides an important link to the social and architectural history of New York.
