After the attractions of bath, this was rather a disappointment. A cluttered collection, poorly distributed on surroundings that resembled a 1970s railway station waiting room. Shan't be rushing back

We visited the gallery to specifically see the Beryl Cook Exhibition "Intimate Relations". It was wonderful - a bucket list dream come true for me. The place is wonderful, the staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. They cherish the art they have and engage their visitors to what is around them. The day we went, the Beryl Cook Exhibition had...

Housed in a beautiful building in the center of Bath, this small collection is definitely worth seeing. There is comfortable seating in the main gallery. Take a moment from touring to relax and study paintings from a number of different eras. Glassware is also displayed. There are docents to answer question, and you can borrow a notebook that has information... More

Centrally located and very professionally, logically presented. After visiting tourist attractions, this is a fine place to settle and treat your mind and soul to a quiet, mellow respite.

Really enjoyed a short visit to this gallery. Only saw the permanent exhibition as no time for special exhibition but found it enlightening and very enjoyable, And ashamed to have know nothing of William Scott before now!

First museum I have visited with a 'greeter' at the front door. Mr. Farquhar(son?), a charming volunteer, was there to direct visitors. Upstairs is where the permanent collection is mounted. The collection, displayed chronologically, started on one side of the room and spanned about 200 years, starting at about Gainesborough's day and ending with more contemporary Fauvist artists. Plenty of... More

We enjoyed wandering through this small museum collection that really feels like a sample of Edwardian and Victorian art. Only the second floor was open and we didn't spend much time at all looking at the glass exhibit. It felt cluttered and was not well displayed. It was hard to focus on special individual items. The room showing the paintings... More

The description of the museum is a little misleading as it has collections that cover Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian and into the late 20rh century. An impressing display that takes you through the different periods in an fascinating sweep. Need to take a breath, suggest you visit the museum and take in its beauty.
