1810 Goundie House


In order to minimize contact with the general public in response to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites will close the Moravian Museum, the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, and Visitor Center and Gift Shops effective Friday, March 13 and will suspend visits, walking tours, and programming through Sunday, March 22.

The home of one of Bethlehem’s early brewers, John Sebastian Goundie, stands on Main Street in downtown Historic Bethlehem. This handsome, Federal-style brick house has been restored and is the setting for changing exhibitions reflecting Bethlehem’s fascinating history.

It’s a story of beer, women, and bribes—learn about the history of brewing in Bethlehem through “Bethlehem Brewed & Distilled, a semi-permanent exhibition.” From the stories of early and modern breweries in Bethlehem to Bethlehem’s secret beer caves, this exhibit takes you through the brewing process—from grain to glass.

Hours / Museum Pass: Monday & Tuesday, by appointment only. Friday - Sunday, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Purchase your Museum Pass at the Historic Bethlehem Visitors Center.

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites operates this area.
