Very well organised, and with the help of head phones, we felt it was extremely informative visit. Should not be missed

What a great place to visit, the audio guide is a must as it explained all the history as you walked around the museum, it's fantastic to see how the baths worked and how the people used all the facilities there. You need at least 3 hours there just to listen to all the audio guide. A great place to... More

Don't miss the baths. They have invested heavily in making this ancient Roman site and multimedia extravaganza. Good for all ages. Do yourself a favor and plan on a half day here as you can meet period actors, taste the water, take live, free guided tours all in addition to the audio tour you get with your entry fee.

Well worth the visit, allow plenty of time as lots to see. Try and go early morning then not so crowded.

The baths have been beautifully displayed with a mix of being able to walk around the baths themselves, and areas of lovely museum displays and interesting facts. VERY good quality audio tour with lots of extra facts that aren't written on the displays. 100% recommended, especially as it is free included in the reasonable entry price.

Engineering of the water systems and use of the natural springs etc truly... More

I first visited the Roman Baths Museum as a child, and was looking forward to a second visit when in Bath this summer. I enjoyed it first time around, but the second visit was even better - there had been a lot of improvements in the interpretation and it was a much better experience. The audio guide is included in... More

This place was fantastic. Do give yourself some time to roam around the museum and listen to the info device. There is a lot of people in this museum. However, we went around lunch time and it was more subdued. My husband and I really liked all the interactive features of the museum. Staff are really nice and they will... More

As a history buff, this was such a pleasure. I loved the building, the exhibits, the tour itself, which is very informative and the ambience. History is brought to life and you can feel the presence of all those who walked there many moons ago. My son really enjoyed this and was 7 at the time.

Like stepping back in time. Beautifully presented and the Bill Bryson audio guides are a real treat. Well worth a visit.
