Recreates William Penn's historical country home. Lots of fascinating historical information, actors in period clothing, and interactive, fun things for all ages to do.

Pennsbury Manor is a a great place to visit. Although it is a reconstruction of what some people believe the area looked like it is still well done and historically informative. The tour guide was very good in explaining what things were most likely historically correct and which things were probably not part of the original manor but had been added later. Theresa, our guide, added quite a lot to the tour by discussing items based on her historical knowledge and studies (she was a student intern). I recommend taking the kids and grandkids. The tour we took was a little over an hour but you could spend much more time if you take in the animals or one of the specialty events.

I enjoy seeing historical homes and this one did not disappoint. Our tour guide was informative and we learned a lot about life in the 16th century and in particular about the life of the founder of PA. There is a film in the visitors center, a museum depicting life in the 16th century, a gift shop as well as the main house and outbuildings. A lovely way to spend a very pleasant afternoon.

Live near the manor and have grown up going here. Also, took my children there. Always something new to see and learn.

The museum is a rebuilt version from the 1930s. so it is not the full historic experience. Went with my daughter and grandson and had a very capable guided tour. The grounds are well maintained. Did a good job of showing life before the revolution,
