This was a great surprise which I discovered as I walked into town along the canal. It has recently been updated and is now of great interest to anyone interested in Georgian Bath - an eclectic mix of exhibits.

This is the best (and one of the few) free museums/galleries in Bath. A great new extension has improved the visitor experience. Children are well catered for.

An easy walk down Great Pulteney with lovely exhibits year round. The grounds are well maintained and provide a relaxing atmosphere if you just want to enjoy the outdoor surroundings.

I wanted to see the exhibition of Breugel paintings and attended with my husband. I really enjoyed the art work by Breugel but my husband was much more enthralled by the other exhibits especially some of the silver tankards and jugs on the ground floor. Overall it was worth the visit as it is free to enter except when there... More

I visited on the recommendation of a colleague, and also because it was only a few minutes' walk from my hotel. It's very nicely curated, with the collections all laid out in an interesting fashion and with enough context to enjoy them. I had a particularly nice time upstairs looking at the portraits, where one lovely volunteer offered to tell... More

I visited this museum specifically to see the Breugel exhibition (which command a fee although the rest of the museum was free). The building itself is a beautiful Georgian edifice - as you may expect in Bath! It's not a huge place to visit but has a pleasing selection of art on display, and there is a cafe and gift... More

I visited the Breugel exhibition and was really impressed by the way it was curated and explained. The Holburne is worth a visit in its own right - lovely historic building with a great approach along from the City centre. It also has an excellent café housed in a well designed modern extension at the rear, set in beautiful gardens.... More

This is a very good museum and well worth a visit. The museum is housed in a grand eighteenth century building and the collection is arranged by subject matter over two main floors. There is a good collection of British paintings including Gainsborough, and galleries for the decorative arts and temporary exhibitions. I was very impressed with the educational explanations...
