The main reason we visited the Bundy Museum was to view the Rod Serling Twilight Zone exhibit. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by Janna who gave us a personal tour of the Bundy House. We learned that the home dates back to 1892 where Harlow Bundy resided. Janna gave us insightful and educational information about the history of... More

We got there about 45 minutes before closing time and were wondering if we going to be able to finish. I didn't start out too well, I felt a little like we inconvenienced our docent. However once we got going it was good. He was able to explain the history behind the house and also the story of how they... More

This museum offers you the (nearly) complete interior of a villa from the end of the 19th century. Due to the completeness it gives you a very good impression of the time and the living style. However the original owner, Mr. Bundy has also an important history as one of the originators of IBM. Nevertheless this aspect is not sufficiently... More

I visited the Bundy Museum and took the full tour about three years ago but I read an article on the internet about the Rod Serling exhibit and, being a huge Serling fan, decided that I just had to see it. The full tour is $7 but you don't have to pay to see the Rod Serling exhibit or any... More

Great place to visit to get a snapshot of early Binghamton. The house is beautiful and we had a guided tour that gave great insight into the life of the Bundys. My daughter (15)was really impressed and loved the African artifacts that are also on display. We had the guide all to ourselves so we got yo ask as many... More

Docent was knowledgeable, friendly, and informative. Tour was enjoyable and informative. Neighborhood was a bit gritty, but fun to explore, nothing to be afraid of.

This is an absolutely unique museum for the diversity of its exhibits and the architectural beauty of its setting. The tour was wonderfully curated and offered fascinating tidbits about history, art, architecture, and engineering. There is something for almost every interest. Don't miss this tour! We also learned about several events that the museum is host to that we would... More

Just across the river Chenango, from the Greyhound Line Bus Station where we got out of the bus upon our arrival in Binghampton, in Main Street is located this beautiful museum. There is a lot of fun here, interesting and educational things. We learned something about the Binghampton's local history in the Timeclock Exhibit. There is also a carriage house... More

What a great home. The woodwork and the architectural detail is amazing!! The stained glass windows are gorgeous, and the display of all the Time recorders through the years is pretty neat to see! Definitely check this museum out .

This is a place with a beautiful art gallery area on two floors. I have seen old and modern styles there and always learn something new about the history of this place. Highly recommend a tour for the full story.
