There are only a few places you really get to see first hand how the Romans lived without it being a historians interpretation of what it was like. This is 100pct real. You are walking thru the actual Baths, you can see exactly what it was like. Well worth a visit - right up there with Ephysys in Turkey.

The museum itself was amazing and extremely interesting, however, the tour guid as part of the evening package was pretty useless. She constantly repeated herself to the point of boredon and was very patronizing to a lady in a wheelchair. The following arranged dinner did not come anywhere near expectations. The internet information showed the "Bath Kitchen", as brightly lit... More

I really enjoyed the Roman Baths Museum. It was informative, interesting and full of history that really came to life as I walked around imagining life oh so long ago. The price is a bit high (£14), but maybe it's needed to keep the place up and running well.

It was so interesting learning about the history of these baths. They were weird and beautiful and made me want to be extra careful not to touch the water. It was a cool experience for sure. Worth a trip.

As part of our tour of the British Isles, my wife and I visited the Roman Bath Museum in Bath. The whole thing is quite extensive, and the commentary through the headphones tells you everything you need to know about the attraction. There's much to see and photograph. Of course, the complex is crowded, so be prepared to move slowly... More

The place was absolutely packed with people on a weekday, making it hard to see the exhibitions, hear the audio guide and enjoy the place. Did not find it worth the entrance fee, unfortunately. Would not go back. Probably better if you're particularly interested in ancient history.

Even though I like exploring history, this museum is still engaging enough that it would give anybody something to marvel at. The exhibits were interesting and informative with a great layout and flow between them.

£14 for a single visit! Eek! Okay, it is a famous historical site so I'll go - I wish i saved my money and went to Thermea instead to soak in a spa. The whole place was packed full of people!! You could hardly see the sign for the audio guide number and then you could hardly hear the audio... More

The Roman Baths are a must see attraction and are simply quite unique; they are very extensive and take you back over 2000 years to how it must have been like to live in Roman Britain.

The audio packs we were given were really informative and you could pick what you wanted to listen to at your leisure.
