Overview

The Museum is now closed for the winter, reopening on 13 February 2016. This unique collection interprets the rich architectural history of Bath and the men who transformed a provincial town into the world famous Georgian Spa. It demonstrates how classical design influenced the buildings and illustrates the construction of a house from the cellars to the rafters. Based in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the building is also home to the Bath Model, a fully detailed architectural model of the historic city centre, giving a unique insight into the layout of the Georgian City.

The lady at 1 Royal Crescent drew us a map to walk to the museum. If only it had been accurate, we'd have been fine, but we ended up on the wrong road. I phoned the museum and asked where they were and, lo and...More
