We went to tour this house. I was shocked it was more than just the house. There was a mini farm with an ox, horse, geese and sheep which are rescue animals. The outbuildings were great. There was a museum inside that was VERY detailed and extremely well done. You can tell the state poured a fortune into it. Nice... More

The museum near the Manor gives the history of the Quaker William Penn. His early ideas for the general form of a democratic government were remarkable. Although I found the history very interesting, the Manor House was rebuilt in the 1930's and is major guess work based on the foundation footprint and little additional information. Our guide was very honest... More

Pennsbury Manor was the summer residence of William Penn. The current main building is a reconstruction, one of the last WPA projects from the 1930s - but the rooms are thoughtfully furnished in period furnishings. Our tour guide, Mary Ann, was in a word superb. She eagerly shared her wealth of knowledge in an engaging manner while patiently answering everyone's... More

I have visited Pennsbury Manor several times and had a marvelous time. Great place to learn about Pennsylvania history and Willian Penn. Very educational and a wonderful location along the Delaware River.

If you're a history buff, enjoy the outdoors and views of the Delaware River, or just want something a bit different to do on a lovely day, then a visit to Pennsbury Manor is the perfect outing for you.

What a great location. Demonstrates what the living conditions were in Wm Penns time. The main manor just needs electricity, heat and plumbing and it would be a upscale home in today's time. Our guide was very thorough and answered all questions from the group we were with.

We just got back from Pennsbury and truly enjoyed our time there. We have read a lot about William Penn and so it was worth our time to check it out. Please note that they are giving you an idea of what it was like. There were no actual plans of the home only some verbal information on how he... More

I recommend taking the 1-1.5 hour guided tour. That's the only way you get inside the house and kitchen. Check the website for tour times. I recommend getting there about an hour prior to the tour and go inside the exhibit at the Visitor's Center and watch the video. The house is a replica of the original which faded into... More

Located at the end of a long series of approach roads that are often heavily used by large trucks, and not far from what remains of U.S. Steel's Fairless Works, sits Pennsbury Manor, an intelligent recreation of William Penn's home for the four years that he lived in America. Since the original house fell into ruin around 1800 what you... More

Amazing place! It is a reconstruction of William Penn's summer retreat house on the Delaware river. Built on the original foundations with all the out buildings, barns and includes representative livestock (OMG Oxen) and a peacock!. WP even brewed beer here. Research continues to be extensive and you can see it in a great exhibit in the visitor center. Lovely... More
